Josep Maria Bartomeu and his board are officially out of Barcelona. Within the next three months, elections will be held and the Catalans will get a new upper hierarchy. Of course, after years of torture, this does feel like a start of a new era.

But there is more good news for the Azulgranas. With Bartomeu’s departure, Lionel Messi staying at the club and renewing his contract is once again a real possibility. This was reported by the journalist Javi Miguel on his personal Twitter account.

And it does make a lot of sense. Messi was primarily worried about Barcelona’s leadership or lack thereof. Now with Bartomeu gone and with a new project on the way in the coming months and years, the Argentine could indeed change his mind.

Of course, nothing is set in stone just yet. After all, he was quite adamant on leaving back in the summer but this changes things – drastically. It remains to be seen who takes the ex-president’s place but hope is once again alive in Catalonia.

Exciting times are ahead.

I’ve been a Barcelona fan for more than half of my life. What started as blind love is slowly turning into professional writing. Now, I get to write about Barca, analyse them, and voice my opinions on them across platforms. I’m happy to be a part of this big project.

During the presentation of the new Inter Miami kit, club owner and former football superstar David Beckham confirmed that he has big ambitions for his side. The Englishman has been making major headway since he founded the club, who began playing in Major League Soccer (MLS) last season.

The Miami based club unveiled their secondary jersey, named La Palma on Saturday. Beckham, during the ceremony spoke about his plans for the club, stating how important it is to attract the biggest names in football.

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United man addressed rumours about both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He said: “I know that in Miami our fans want to see great stars. Messi and Ronaldo have been mentioned, have been at the top of their game and have been the best for the last 15 years. We want to attract the best players.”

Speaking about the talent he has already managed to attract, Beckham added: “We already have players like Higuaín and Matuidi who already bring shine and glamour, but in the future we want to have the opportunity to bring big name signings.”

Back when Messi asked to leave Barcelona last summer, the Argentine was linked however briefly to a move to the MLS. Inter Miami, being the most possible suitors. However, Messi ended up staying in Spain after a complicated transfer saga.

There is no doubt that with Beckham at the helm, Inter Miami could attract a ton of big names in the future. However, a move to the States would most certainly be a step sideways for Messi, considering he still has years left at the top in Europe.
