Lionel Messi is set to enter his first full season in the MLS. The 36-year-old Argentine joined Inter Miami in July 2023 and has shown no signs of slowing down ever since. As the club is currently in its off-season, Lionel Messi is hard at work. A picture shared by the World Cup winner shows him and his partner putting in work at the gym.

The Argentine sported black shorts and Adidas sports shoes as he posed for a mirror selfie with his wife. His abs and defined physique were on display as fans shared their excitement to see the 36-year-old putting in the work at this age. Antonela Roccuzzo posed with her husband and sported a pink sports bra and tight shorts. The two appeared to be in a gym and posed for the picture in front of dumbbells and other gym equipment.

Even though Lionel Messi led Inter Miami to their first-ever trophy as a club, his impact on the regular MLS season was extremely limited. He played just 5 league games for the club before picking up an injury which forced him to sit out crucial games for the club. Inter Miami failed to make the playoffs as a consequence.

As Messi prepares to play his first full season in the MLS, fans are excited as to how the Argentine will fare fitness-wise. He previously shared pictures with Antonela Roccuzzo and a personal trainer at the gym.

Over a year since their meeting, Alphonso Davies took to Instagram, and netizens believe that he has settled the GOAT debate for himself. In a story shared on Instagram, Davies posted a picture of what appears to be his home gym. Lionel Messi’s #30 PSG kit has been framed and kept on display. The jersey has been signed and also has the GOAT sponsorship on the left sleeve.

As for Davies, the left-back is linked with a move away from the German champions. Rumors that Real Madrid are behind him have also started to heat up. The Canadian’s desire to swap jerseys with the Argentine is the result of perseverance as well. Earlier, Davies asked for Messi’s jersey when Barcelona were beaten 8-2 by Bayern. However, Lionel Messi turned down the request. Fast forward to 2022, Davies finally got his wish granted as the two swapped jerseys during Bayern Munich vs PSG.
