It’s always been an interesting topic of conversation discussing how Lionel Messi will spend his post-Barcelona football career. While Barcelona fans hope there is no such thing as a post-Barcelona Lionel Messi, there always remains hope for other clubs around the world as long as he’s playing.

In reality, most think Messi will return to Argentina if he is to play for any club other than Barcelona at all. Getting to play a few years at his boyhood club would be a pretty wonderful storybook ending for one of the greatest players of all time.

If there are any other options for Messi other than retiring a Barcelona player or returning to Argentina to play, the only somewhat feasible option was Messi heading to MLS to play out a couple of seasons.

That reality was given a little hint of life when Messi made a video congratulating David Beckham on his new Miami MLS club in a recent video.

“Hi David, first of all congratulations, I hope all goes well with the new project, in this new step you are taking and who knows, in a few years maybe you will give me a call,”

Athletes enjoy congratulating other athletes and joke about playing with each other. Who knows if Messi would even consider it, but since it’s Lionel Messi and David Beckham, it’s at the very least interesting.
