Messi Will Have to Choose Between Barcelona and Argentina in October


Lionel Messi seems to be in a position to choose between representing Barcelona, in a El Clasico against Real Madrid, or Argentina in the middle of October.

The next two World Cup qualifiers have been scheduled for Argentina.

In view of the fact that the 2022 World Cup will realistically be his last, the forward is expected to want to ensure that his national team finishes in Qatar.

At the same time, with the 33-year-old returning to the squad, the club legend will appear in his regular spot on the right under Ronald Koeman.

While the second of the two World Cup bouts takes place 12 days before the first El Clasico of the season against Real Madrid, the current regulations require two weeks of isolation after travel between different countries.

So, if he were to travel back to his homeland, Messi would also be absent from the Getafe and Alaves fixtures.

Messi has thus been left with a difficult choice to make next month.
