Lionel Messi is very close to returning to Barcelona and the main condition has already been met.
Inter Miami were beaten 1-0 at home by Cincinnati in a match in which Messi played the last 35 minutes.
With the defeat by Cincinnati, Inter Miami has officially left the competition for the “Play-Off” in the elite American soccer MLS.
This means that Inter Miami’s last game this season will be on October 22 against Charlotte and then Messi and his teammates will have a four-month break.
Not playing with Inter Miami in the playoffs was the last condition for Messi’s return to Barcelona.
Accordingly, given the break that Inter Miami’s players will have, Barcelona wants to loan the wonderful Argentine in the winter transfer window and it is very real that this will happen.
According to Spanish media in recent weeks, Inter Miami are ready to let Messi go on loan to Barca, even if it means he will miss the first two months of the next MLS season.
Now it is the turn of Messi, who must ask the head of Inter, first of all the owner David Beckham, to let him go on loan to once again wear the shirt of his heart club.
