The attacker later went to France, thus making a drastic switch in his domestic career. Who would have thought we would be seeing Messi in a different jersey?

The last dance of Lionel Messi

Leo Messi’s farewell at Barcelona was an emotional one. His last day in the office had to come anyway, yet the 35-year-old didn’t get a proper send-off. Many soccer fans wanted a fair send-off for La Pulga in front of thousands of fans.

Unfortunately, nothing could have been done for their former star player. However, there might be a possibility that the Argentine can still get the farewell he deserves.

Recently, Gerard Romero was called on Gerard Pique’s new venture show, the King’s league. Hence, during the twitch stream, there was a talk about Messi where the famous journalist floated the idea of calling Messi to the King’s League finals, which will be held in Camp Nou.

“Why don’t we call Messi and let him do his last dance at Camp Nou, in the Kings League finals? … Agüero could call him.”

It was only a suggestion that Romero made, but it’s still unclear if the World Cup winner would be invited to the game’s finals.

Hearing Messi’s return to Spotify Camp Nou is, of course, a melody in the ears of Barca fans. However, it’s unlikely the player would be interested in getting into a recreational venture.
