‘Messi will retire wherever he wants’ – Suarez says Barcelona superstar will dictate his own future

05-Feb-2021, 03:09 pm

Lionel Messi, Barcelona, Champions League 2020-21

Luis Suarez is backing Lionel Messi to “retire wherever he wants” as speculation continues to rage regarding the Barcelona superstar’s future.

There is little chance of the gossip going away, with thesix-time Ballon d’Or winner continuing to run down his contract at Camp Nou.

If no fresh terms are agreed with the only club side he has represented in hisremarkable career, then the South American will become a free agent.

Suarez, who enjoyed six trophy-laden years alongside Messi at Camp Noubefore joining Atletico Madrid last summer, feels his former team-mate has earned the right to make his own decisions.

He admits anything could happen before the all-time great hangs up his boots, with the 33-year-old having revealed in the past that he would like to experience MLS and a return to Newell’s Old Boys before calling it a day.

“This afternoon I spoke with him, he was very happy about the victory over Granada,” Suarez told El Transistor.“He is playing at a spectacular level, he is the best in the world.

“Messi will retire wherever he wants, he can decide whether it's at Barcelona, in Argentina or wherever.”

Barca have not given up hope when it comes to thrashing out a contract extension for their talismanic captain. Financial difficulties for the Liga giants are, however, making life difficult, with it revealed that they are now €1.2 billion (£1.1b/$1.5b) in debt.

Details of Messi’s lucrative contract have also been leaked, with the four-year deal he agreed back in 2017 set to earn him €555 million (£491m/$674m).
