Lionel Messi has made the decision to join Inter Miami, a soccer team based in Miami, Florida. Although the deal is not completely finalized, Messi has expressed his intention to continue his career there. This news comes after months of speculation about his future, including rumors of a return to Barcelona and a potential move to the Middle East. Instead, Messi has chosen to follow the path of other superstar players who have joined Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States.
It is not surprising that Messi has chosen Inter Miami, as the team is owned by David Beckham, who is a well-known fan of Messi. In the past, Beckham had hinted at the possibility of signing Messi. The MLS has welcomed the prospect of having Messi play in the league, although a formal agreement is still pending.
Messi recently left Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in France, where he had played for two seasons. He won two league titles with PSG but was unable to help the club win the Champions League. His time at PSG ended on a sour note after he was suspended for taking an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia. His final game for PSG ended in defeat.
Prior to his stint with PSG, Messi spent 17 successful years at Barcelona, where he became a sporting legend. He left Barcelona in 2021 due to financial issues at the club. Despite his departure, Messi’s father had previously mentioned that his preferred move would be a return to Barcelona.
In a recent interview, Messi expressed his desire to continue playing as long as he enjoys the game. He is 35 years old and believes he still has a few more years to give to soccer.
