According to Cadena Ser, a meeting would have been scheduled between PSG and Lionel Messi’s entourage at Julio Iglesias’ home in Punta Cana. But the election of Joan Laporta to the presidency changed the plans.
But where will Lionel Messi play next season? The answer will not come next summer but a turn could have been taken last week. According to Spanish radio Cadena Ser, the entourage of the six-fold Ballon d’Or was to meet PSG, which no longer hides its interest in the Argentine at the end of the contract next summer, last week. In rather unlikely circumstances. A meeting has indeed been scheduled at the home of internationally successful Spanish singer Julio Iglesias in Punta Cana (Dominican Republic).
Messi’s father Jorge was due to take part to discuss the contours of his son’s Parisian life in the event he signed in the French capital. According to Spanish radio, the participants “had to talk about things that affected the player if he lived in Paris, but not PSG: some problems between Messi and Paris would be resolved”.

But not all of these pretty people ended up as planned. Messi’s father was indeed awaiting the results of Barça’s presidential election and Joan Laporta’s victory reshuffled the cards. The Messi clan had announced that in the event of the latter’s success, the option of listening to Barça for the striker’s future would be open. This was not considered before, it would now be. The new president is a strong supporter of the extension of “La Pulga”.
The media does not specify whether the meeting with the Parisian leaders will be postponed to a later date. According to Cadena Ser, Messi will somehow join the United States before ending his career. “Whatever happens, whether he leaves or stays at Barça, he will do two seasons in Miami”, according to the journalist. Not far from Punta Cana.
