Lionel Messi is on the brink of signing a mega deal with MLS franchise Inter Miami even as he plays at the World Cup with the Argentine Men’s National team.
Messi’s MLS contract is expected to become the highest in the history of the MLS. According to The Times via Fichajes, Messi will sign a contract with Inter Miami after the World Cup.
Why is Messi moving to Inter Miami?
Messi is one of the greatest footballers of all time and has won some of the biggest trophies, including the Champions League, La Liga, FIFA Club World Cup, and Copa America.
Most football fans would expect him to retire from the major European league. However, the Argentine has different plans on the table.
The MLS is increasingly becoming a competitive league even as the organisers seek to bridge the gap between the attention it gets and that of Europe, which doesn’t seem possible right now.
Also, Messi’s decision to move to the MLS is expected to amount to a significant increase in salary as the David Beckham-owned franchise is willing to meet his wage demands.
