It’s in! The GOAT of football is going to the MLS. According to Guillem Balague and Fabrizio Romano, Lionel Messi will don the pink jersey of Inter Miami starting the following season. The decision will be made official in the next few hours.
The Lionel Messi Sweepstakes
After the contract expiration at PSG, the Argentinian opted out of resigning the contract. Messi received numerous offers from some Saudi Pro League clubs, but he reportedly even turned down a contract worth a billion dollars in two years. The fans that wanted the reunion of Messi and Ronaldo would be heavily disappointed.
Messi’s former club, Barcelona, was also close to signing him. There had been approval by the La Liga of Barcelona’s financial plan to bring back their legend. However, the team did not make any official offers to Lionel Messi.
In the end, it was Inter Miami who became the winner of the Lionel Messi sweepstakes. Inter Miami’s president is David Beckham, the world-renowned star who has played against Messi multiple times in Europe. He might be the key to the success of the transfer.
Lionel Messi will help this team tremendously. The relatively young team is struggling in the MLS this season as they sit at the bottom of the table with only five wins after 16 matches. The economic value that the Argentinian brings will be huge for not only Inter Miami and the MLS but also for the country. The football image will also receive a major boost, especially with the World Cup just around the corner in 2026!
Thank you, Leo!
But for Messi, this might have marked the end of his journey in Europe. After around two decades of playing for Barcelona and PSG, the USA might be his final destination. He has completed football, achieving every title and record a human could ever do. Winning the World Cup in Qatar is the last beautiful note that he could fulfill. Other than that, his past two seasons at the French giant were underwhelming.
Thank you, legend, for making football a beautiful game! Best of luck in the MLS, Lionel Messi!
