Lionel Messi could be looking to end his European football career by signing a short-term contract before heading somewhere else.
ESPN journalist, Christian Martín, claims the 33-year-old is looking at a potential one or two-year deal with FC Barcelona.
Afterward, the Argentina international might cross over to the US to wrap up his playing career.
Martín adds that Messi seems destined to find his way to Major League Soccer and sign with Inter Miami.
Co-owner David Beckham wants star players and recognizable names for his South Florida-based club.
“The Argentine star is evaluating FC Barcelona’s proposal, to potentially go one or two years and then football in the United States, to MLS, where Inter Miami would be one of the potential destinations for Messi,” Martín said.
Beckham has already signed Gonzalo Higuaín and Blaise Matuidi.
