According to reports, Manchester United legend David Beckham believes that the Argentine superstar Lionel Messi is set to leave PSG for Inter Miami.
Messi, who joined PSG in 2021 after leaving Barcelona, has entered the final year of his contract in Paris. While PSG is desperate for Messi to sign a new contract, a number of rival clubs have begun to express interest in signing one of the greatest players of all time. One of them are his former club Barcelona, who is reportedly eager for Messi to return to the Nou Camp, where he scored 672 goals in 778 games and won 10 league titles and four Champions Leagues.
Is Lionel Messi set to leave PSG to join Inter Miami?
Messi has previously stated his desire to return to his former club. But reliable sources have revealed that an audacious swoop from Beckham’s Inter Miami could sway him. Inter Miami, which finished sixth in the MLS Eastern Conference this season, plans to make Messi the biggest signing in the club’s history and is growing confident of completing a deal.
How far has the deal progressed?
Reports suggest the negotiations have progressed to the point where Inter Milan now ‘expects’ Messi to join the club and sign a contract in the coming months.
The negotiations are being led by Jorge and Jose Mas, the brothers who co-own Inter Miami with Beckham, and several meetings have taken place with Messi’s father, Jorge. However, the talks are currently put on hold until the end of the Qatar World Cup. But Messi is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with another club of his choice in January.
