The FIFA World Cup is finally over, and Argentina have arrived home as the Champion of the World. But there’s no time to take a rest. The top five leagues are restarting, and all the clubs are preparing for the upcoming transfer window in January.
Messi’s next destination
Lionel Messi, the greatest of all time, has won the most awaited world cup for Argentina. He is now in Argentina, celebrating with the team. However, Messi has achieved his dream, but what’s next for Leo?
Lionel Messi joined the French side Paris Saint-German in 2021 with a one-year contract. But his contract will expire next June. He will become a free agent if he doesn’t renew the contract with PSG.
There are many clubs who are seriously interested in signing the World Cup winner. David Beckham’s Inter Miami has been very desperate to bring Messi. On the other hand, his former club FC Barcelona is also trying to get him back.
However, Lionel Messi hasn’t decided anything yet. He focused on the FIFA World Cup. Messi said before that he would decide his future after the world cup, discussing it with his family.
But PSG’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is confident to extend Messi’s contract with the club. He wants Messi to stay one more season at PSG. Khelaifi also said that Messi is happy at PSG. During the world cup, Khelaifi said, “Keep Mbappé and Messi? Of course, one is the top scorer, and the other is best player in the World Cup. I don’t want to say anything for Leo, we had an agreement to talk after the World Cup.”
Emiliano Martinez is one of the heroes for Argentina to win the world cup. He saved two penalties in the semifinal and saved a crucial penalty in the final. His heroic performance attracted many top clubs in Europe.
German club FC Bayern Munich is interested in signing Emi Martinez to replace Manual Nuer. But it will be very difficult for any club to sign the world cup winner for the high competitions.
Gustavo Goni, the agent of Emi Martinez, said that Martinez wants to play in the Champions League. He also said, “Today there are few teams that can afford a goalkeeper like him. But Serie A, well, why not? He is clearly aiming high, for the Champions League.”
