'Messi Will Only Leave Barca For Two Destinations'

While there has been talk of Lionel Messi leaving FC Barcelona in the past, it has been claimed the Argentine will only consider two destinations if he does decide to leave.

Inter Milan have long been linked with the Argentine superstar, although there was never any concrete approach from the Serie A giants.

The links with Inter have once again resurfaced, but former Barcelona star Rivaldo feels China or the Major League Soccer would be Messi's destinations, not Serie A.

“Inter's president Massimo Moratti said this week that he could bring Lionel Messi to the club and resume his personal clash with Cristiano Ronaldo in Italy, but as I've said before I don't believe that the Argentinian would leave Barcelona for any other European club," Rivaldo told Betfair.

“I think he has no reasons to leave Spain, but if that happens one day then he could sign for a club from China or MLS, but only when he stops being so decisive for the Catalan outfit.

“Even if a move to Inter could be financially encouraging for the player, I suspect that wouldn't be enough to convince him and I think this is more like propaganda from Inter's president than a real possibility in the next transfer market.

“Of course, Inter is a big European club that have recruited excellent players in the past and managed to win some important titles, but I can't imagine Messi changing club while he is still at his best level at Barcelona.

“There were also rumours about potential interest from Manchester City, but their manager Pep Guardiola considers Messi to be where he should be and is still playing at a high enough level to help Barcelona very much.

“So, to sum up I consider that these are just rumours and believe Messi should finish his career in Europe after representing just one club. If he does leave, then it will be to China or a north American club where he can enjoy a different environment with not as much pressure and competitiveness.”
