Lionel Messi Agrees To Join Inter Miami : Reports


Lionel Messi has agreed to join Inter Miami in the MLS as first reported by popular Argentina journalist Hernan Castillo on Tuesday evening and then later by various outlets on Wednesday afternoon.

Last week, SPORT reported that the David Beckham co-owned American franchise had made a formal offer to Messi which will pay him €50 million ($54 million) per season for four years.

Inter Miami has always been touted as a potential next destination for Messi, whose Paris Saint-Germain contract expires on June 30.

Until now, though, the Argentine has been most strongly linked to former club FC Barcelona and Al-Hilal in the Middle East.

Barca finally received the green light from La Liga to sign Messi on Tuesday, after their economic viability plan explaining how they can make the deal work amid financial difficulties was accepted by the Spanish top flight.

Still, amid reports that they are now ready to table a proposal to Messi, the Catalans needs to sell players to pull off the return of their greatest-ever player and the Argentine wants to have his future resolved quickly to avoid living a transfer soap opera over the summer.

On Sunday, Footmercato reported how the Messi camp had accepted a €1.2 billion ($1.3 billion), two-season offer from Al-Hilal that would have him top Forbes' list of the World's Highest-Paid Athletes in 2024.

On Monday, however, Messi's entourage told a Saudi delegation which traveled to Paris to close a potential deal that they wish to delay the move until 2024 according to GOAL.
