Lionel Messi has a 50% chance of staying with FC Barcelona, but could still join Paris Saint-Germain, according to a new report from Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

The shocking part is that this same report goes on to say that no matter what happens, the Argentine star will move to Miami in two years’ time.

PSG scheduled to meet with Leo's father Jorge Messi but it was later cancelled. The meeting, said to be held in singer Julio Iglesias’s residence in the Dominican Republic, was meant to discuss the player’s life should he choose to move to Paris,

The meeting was not with PSG representatives directly, but would have meant a huge step in the Argentine maestro’s proposed move to the Parisian club.

However, the election of Joan Laporta changed things for Messi. As of now, there is a possibility that he will stay at Barcelona and there is also a possibility that he will leave the club. If Laporta would not have won, Messi would have certainly announced his departure this summer.

Furthermore, the report says Messi’s father has told people that no matter what, his son will move to Miami in 2023, after two more seasons in Europe.

Beckham, the owner of Inter Miami has already hinted that he was onboard with the idea of Messi and Ronaldo playing for his team.

“I know that in Miami our fans want to see big stars,” he said.

Beckham concluded, "We already have players like Gonzalo Higuaín and Blaise Matuidi, but in the future we want to have the opportunity to bring in big names. Leo and Cristiano have been mentioned, they have been at the top of their game and they have been the best for the last 15 years."
