Adding to the intensity, Miami will also be engaged in the Leagues Cup from July 26 to August 25.

In an interview with Tyc Sports, Mascherano mentioned, “Lionel acknowledges that age is catching up with him. Despite his stature as Messi, he needs to carefully manage his workload due to a year of intense activity. We’ve extended an invitation for him to contemplate participating in the Olympics. It’s important for him to have time to consider and assess the situation as it would require him to leave his club.”New England Patriots Apply Transition Tag to Dugger: Negotiations and Implications

Mascherano also highlighted goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez’s potential role, stating, “How could we overlook Dibu Martínez? We have the luxury of possessing a World Cup-winning squad. There are numerous high-quality players, and Dibu is among the world’s best goalkeepers.”

He added, “Ángel (Di María) acknowledged the invitation but has no plans to go to Paris. We’ve excluded him as he aims to provide opportunities for younger players.”

While Messi has previously clinched an Olympic gold medal in 2008, there remains uncertainty regarding his participation in the Paris Olympics. However, he is anticipated to feature prominently in Argentina’s Copa America title defense. As the reigning world champions, Argentina shoulders significant expectations.
