Inter Miami hope to sign Messi if PSG star ever makes MLS transfer

According to the American channel DirecTV, Lionel Messi will buy 35% of the rights to the American franchise of Inter Miami, which he would like to join in the summer of 2023, at the end of his contract with PSG.

A last year in Paris before leaving for the United States? This would be the plan of Lionel Messi (34) under contract until 2023 with PSG with an optional additional year. But the seven-time Ballon d’Or should not be back for a third season in the French capital. 

According to the DirecTV channel , the Argentinian would indeed be in the process of acquiring 35% of the rights to the American franchise of Inter Miami. A team he should join in the summer of 2023, at the end of his contract in Paris, according to the journalist of the chain, Alex Candal.

According to the latter, everything is ready: the contract has already been drawn up but has not yet been signed. This could happen during the month of August. Inter Miami, owned by former footballer David Beckham, is the latest team to join Major League Soccer in 2020, two years after its inception. The team is having a difficult start with 10th place in the Eastern Conference in 2020 and 11th in 2021. It’s even more complicated this season since the Florida franchise is currently penultimate in its mid-league conference.

Messi already owns a luxury apartment in Miami

The arrival of Lionel Messi in the shareholders and in the field would offer a clear boost in visibility and competitiveness. The player has always confided that he would like to play in the United States if he had the opportunity. And the track leading to Inter Miami has often been mentioned in recent years.

“I always said that I would like to take advantage of the experience of living in the United States, to play in this championship, launched in December 2020. But I do not know if that will happen, now or later. The Spanish media have already reported that the former Barça idol acquired a luxury apartment in the South Beach district in 2019. The idea of ​​settling in the Florida megalopolis in 2023 dates from this time. A journalist from Cadena Ser explained that Messi wanted “his children to go to high school before university” in the United States.

While waiting for this potential departure, Messi will honor his second year of contract with PSG, which he joined in 2021 after the end of his adventure at FC Barcelona. His father Jorge recently opened the door to one day returning to Catalonia. But that could therefore wait a few more years as Messi’s short-term plans could take on an American accent.
