Messi decided to leave PSG when his contract expired.

And a return to the Nou Camp seemed almost certain after several public declarations of love from coach and ex-teammate Xavi Hernandez.

However, Messi left Barca and football fans stunned when he confirmed he would join David Beckham’s Inter Miami instead.

The veteran could end up teaming up with three former pals in Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.

And Messi admits he dislikes Barcelona due to their ongoing financial woes.

But now he has reviewed his last two years in the French capital with PSG.

Messi won two titles and scored 32 goals in 75 games.

Still, he failed to help PSG achieve their dream of winning the Champions League.


And Messi was heavily booed by the fans in his last home game at the weekend.

The superstar admits he wasn’t happy at Parc des Princes and hopes playing in MLS will bring him renewed joy.

Messi told Mundo Deportivo: “I’ve gotten to a point where I want to step out of the spotlight a bit and think more about my family.

“I had two years in which I was personally so dissatisfied that I didn’t enjoy it.

“I’ve had this month which has been spectacular for me because of winning the World Cup, but other than that it’s been a difficult time for me.

“I want to rediscover the joy of enjoying my family, my children and everyday life.

“And that’s why the decision for Barcelona wasn’t made.”
