Messi’s deal with the Blaugrana will expire at the end of June, and they are desperately trying to tie down the 33-year-old star to a new agreement.
Inter Miami have aspirations to bring the best players
Jorge Mas, an owner of Inter Miami, believes his club will be able to buy Barcelona star Lionel Messi in the future. Messi’s deal with the Blaugrana will expire at the end of June, and they are desperately trying to tie down the 33-year-old star to a new agreement. Various reports have said that Messi’s potential Barcelona extension would include a provision for him to play two more seasons in Spain and then departure to Inter Miami in 2023. Jorge confirmed that he and Inter Miami co-owner David Beckham were involved in negotiations to bring Messi to Florida. “David and I have worked very hard, we have aspirations to bring the best players here, and Leo Messi is a generational player, perhaps the best player of all time,” Mas told reporters.
Messi is interested in playing in the United States
“I am optimistic that Messi will play in an Inter Miami jersey because I think it will complete the effect of the greatest player of our generation and meet the ambition of the owners of this club to build a world-class team.” In an interview late last year, the mercurial Argentine confirmed that he is interested in playing in the US at some point in his career. “I always said that I have the feeling that I would like to enjoy the experience of life in the USA, of living in that league and that life, but if it happens or not, I don’t know,” Leo Messi told reporters. Barcelona president Joan Laporta has said that renewal talks with Messi are “going well,” but stressed that no deal is done as of yet.
Barca are going through an extensive audit of their finances to determine how much they can offer the 33-year-old superstar. Messi is also looking for guarantees that the Catalan club will be able to put together a competitive team for the 2021-22 season after failing in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League last season. PSG and Manchester City have been most closely associated with a potential move for Messi if he decides to leave Camp Nou.
