The eight-time Ballon d’Or winner, 36, began his new adventure in the United States by joining Inter Miami last summer.

It followed over two decades in Europe with Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, before he won the World Cup with Argentina in December 2022.

Messi, much like his long-time rival Cristiano Ronaldo, is often quizzed about when he will decide to finally call time on his legendary career.

But unlike the majority of elite footballers who retire in their early or mid-30s, the football magician is adamant his decision will not be based on merely his age.

The Argentine hero insists he wants to continue playing as long as he can contribute positively to his team, telling MBC’s Big Time Podcast via The Mirror: “I know that the moment that I know that I’m not performing, that I’m not enjoying myself, that I’m not helping my teammates.

“I am very self-critical. I know when I am good, when I am bad, when I play well, when I play badly… And when I feel it is time to take that step, I will take it without thinking about age. If I feel good, I will always try to continue competing, because it is what I like and what I know how to do.”

He now appears to be enjoying himself in Florida, winning his 44th career trophy with Inter Miami in the form of the 2023 Leagues Cup.
