Lionel Messi could reportedly head to MLS upon the end of his contract at Paris Saint-Germain.
The 34-year-old has endured a tough debut season in Paris, failing to end PSG’s Champions League wait. Even domestically, he hasn’t managed to take Ligue 1 by storm, and was even absent from the league’s Team of the Season.
Despite all his struggles at Parc des Princes, Messi is going to fulfill his contract through 2023.
But it has been claimed by DirecTV journalist (via Marca) that the Argentina international will sign for Inter Miami once his contract expires.
The report added that Messi is preparing to buy a 35 per cent stake in the MLS outfit, which is co-owned by David Beckham. The Englishman incidentally concluded his career in the French capital.
The Miami based club is currently managed by Phil Neville. The former Man Utd defender was a first-team coach under David Moyes at Carrington before moving to Valencia.
In 2016, he was in the dugout alongside his brother Gary Neville in Valencia’s historic 7-0 thrashing by Barcelona at Camp Nou. Messi bagged a hat-trick in that game. Neville would be relieved to have the former Barca superstar on his side, if he does indeed moves to Miami.
However, Messi’s camp have told Le Parisien the player has not yet decided on his future.
