Lionel Messi drops MAJOR hint on retirement ahead of Inter Miami Debut

Despite possessing all the qualities of a global football superstar, Lionel Messi still harbors a strong desire for something. The 36-year-old is expected to be unveiled as a player for Inter Miami on Sunday, July 16th, opting for this move over the possibility of returning to his childhood club, Barcelona. As he enters a new phase in his footballing journey, Lionel Messi appears to be far from contemplating retirement.

“Honestly, I don’t know until when. I think it will happen when it has to happen. After having achieved everything recently, the only thing left to do is to enjoy. God will say when that moment will come. Logically, because of my age, I’m sure it will be soon. “
