Riquelme sure: “Lionel Messi will end his career in Barcelona”
Lionel Messi left FC Barcelona just a few weeks ago – ex-colleague Riquelme still believes that the Catalans will end their career.
Although Lionel Messi only left FC Barcelona this summer for Paris Saint-Germain, his former team-mate and compatriot Juan Roman Riquelme is sure that the 34-year-old will end his career at Barca.
“I think Messi will win the Champions League with PSG and end his career in Barcelona,” said Riquelme ESPN . He is looking forward to Messi’s “teamwork with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar,” said the ex-international.
PSG: Messi is under contract until 2023
With the current squad, PSG have the best chance of winning the premier class. “If they don’t win the Champions League now, they will never win it,” said Riquelme, who was with Barca in the 2002/03 season and played with Messi in the Albiceleste for several years.
Messi was forced to leave Barca in the summer due to financial problems facing the Catalans, having previously spent his entire club career with the 26-time Spanish champions. His contract with PSG runs until 2023 with an option for another year.
