As the talk about future rages, Lionel Messi is searching for more titles, with the mercurial Argentine seeing Copa del Rey glory in 2021 as a “turning point” for Barcelona. That could be seen as a hint at a longer stay at Camp Nou, as the six-time Ballon d’Or winner continues to work his way into free agency.
Messi, 33, has plenty of opportunities to ponder at his age, with Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain holding a close eye on his case, but he’s glad to be back on the trophy trail after a trying spell for Barcelona on and off the field.
Copa Del Rey Was Special – Lionel Messi
“The fact is that the recent Copa del Rey was special due to the era we were in, the club had been through a couple of years of not getting a fantastic time due to various results and titles,” Messi told Ole.
“Because it’s a very youthful dressing room, with a lot of new faces, and this Copa del Rey was a watershed moment for the dressing room. Whenever I play, I compete to succeed and to fulfill all of the goals, to win championships. Aside from that, I enjoy winning and obtaining titles. The greater the amount, the better,” he said.
Lionel Messi Future – The Bigger Picture
Messi has 672 goals in 778 games for Barcelona. It is the only team he has ever played for in his senior career. He won’t appear in Saturday’s season-ending match against Eibar. As he was given an early break ahead of summer Copa America duties.. He could have played his last game for the Blaugrana. However, new words are being discussed, and leaving Catalunya would be difficult after all that he has accomplished.
Messi arrived in Spain as a gifted youth in need of athletic support and physical help. He now enjoys celebrity status after 21 years. “From there, I was fortunate in that something happened very fast,” he said.
Messi has already cemented his place among the all-time greats, to contribute to his illustrious trophy cabinet. It contains 10 La Liga titles and four Champions League titles.
