It is reported that Lionel Messi will acquire a 35% stake in Inter Miami and then join the MLS club when his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires next year.
The report DirecTV Sports correspondent in Argentina Alex Candal on Tuesday said that “the contract is completed and will be signed in August”, despite a number of rejections from people close to the Argentine international player.
Messi, who owns an apartment in Miami Beach, has long been associated with the transition to a three-year Premier League football club. But the rumors gained new life on Monday when Inter Miami co-owner David Beckham posted on Instagram photos of himself with PSG stars Messi, Neymar, Sergio Ramos and Killian Mbape.
Messi’s agents told Le Parisien that the message was “completely false, Leo has not yet decided on his future. And if Leo Messi has crossed paths with David Beckham in the last few hours, it is only during PSG’s stay in Doha that the former England midfielder will play the role of ambassador at the next World Cup in Qatar. “
Jorge Mas, another well-known co-owner of Inter Miami, in February turned to ongoing rumors and said the club would take the opportunity to offer the long-serving Barcelona star a contract offer when his days at PSG end.
“Leo Messi is still one of the best players in the world, his skills are not diminishing,” Jorge Mas, co-owner and CEO of Inter Miami, said in February.
“I believe, and David [Beckham] has a relationship with him that if he leaves PSG, at the time he leaves PSG, we would like Messi to be a player at Inter Miami and be part of our community.
“Could this happen? Let’s push. I’m an optimist at heart – can I see how this happens? This is an opportunity. “
