The failed Manchester City pursuit stemmed from Lionel Messi’s desire for assurances regarding the presence of his close friend Sergio Aguero at the club, along with the continuation of Pep Guardiola’s tenure. Unfortunately, Aguero’s subsequent move to Barcelona did not align with Messi’s conditions.

Although Guardiola remained at Manchester City and went on to achieve a historic treble with the team, Messi’s stint at PSG didn’t quite match the success he had hoped for. Despite winning the French Ligue 1 title and finally securing the elusive FIFA World Cup, Messi’s tenure at PSG was marred by a lack of Champions League success.

After just two seasons without capturing the Champions League title at PSG, Messi sought a new adventure, this time teaming up with Manchester United legend David Beckham at Inter Miami in Major League Soccer (MLS). Messi’s arrival electrified the MLS, as he delivered crucial goals and guided the team to their inaugural silverware.

Messi’s impact at Inter Miami was immediate, with 16 goals in 19 appearances, placing him third on the club’s all-time top goalscorers list behind Leonardo Campana and Gonzalo Higuaín.
