Lionel Messi is reportedly in talks with his next club
Lionel Messi is hardly on Paris-Saint-Germain’s doorstep but has reportedly been in talks with Inter Miami.
Messi’s contract at PSG expires in June 2023 and The Mirror reports that Inter Miami co-owner David Beckham has been in talks with the Argentine superstar to end his career in Florida.
Lionel Messi talks about his dream in MLS.
The publication said the former Barcelona player bought six Miami apartments to get there two years after his tenure in Paris.
The prospect of winning the six-time Golden Ball in Inter Miami’s pink and white jersey is not entirely believable.
When there was speculation about his future at Barcelona last year, Messi was quoted as saying: “I want to play in the United States and live life and championships there, but also return to Barcelona with some qualities.”
That, combined with Beckham’s undeniable assertiveness, seems to give Inter Miami the edge when it comes to Messi’s next move.
Additionally, an article published earlier this month in the Miami Herald said, “This spring. He (Messi) bought an apartment in Miami Beach for $7.3 million. He recently spent a short break here after taking Argentina to the Copa America, had dinner at a local Italian restaurant and was blown away by the admiration of the fans going out.
All of this means Messi could be ruled by Phil Neville in a few years, if the stars fit in, if Beckham’s ex-girlfriend at Manchester United stays in her job that long.
Neville has changed quite a bit around the corner in recent weeks, causing Miami to lose seven games after a rather poor start to the MLS season.
You are 11th in the Eastern Conference, trying to put pressure on the late playoffs.
Notable names to emerge for the club this season include Gonzalo Higuain, Keeran Gibbs and Blaise Matuidi.
