Former international teammate Gonzalo Higuaín has revealed that his MLS team, Inter Miami, is eager to bring in Lionel Messi from PSG in the future.
Speaking to ESPN (via objective), Gonzalo Higuaín said that Inter Miami, a team owned by David Beckham, wants to sign Lionel Messi. However, given that his contract with PSG has two years left, nothing can be done for now. Higuaín said:
“I don’t want to get into trouble, I don’t know about Leo in Miami. He signed for two years with PSG. The club wants him, we’ll see.”
Inter Miami with David Beckham has been an extremely ambitious team. The Florida team has signed players like Gonzalo Higuaín and Blaise Matuidi in their short career.
A transfer to Inter Miami for Lionel Messi was in the rounds this summer before the six-time Ballon d’Or winner decided to join PSG on a free transfer. According to several reportsLionel Messi was interested in signing a long-term contract with Barcelona with the option of joining Inter Miami after two years.
However, due to financial constraints, Barcelona were not in a position to pay for a new contract with Lionel Messi, who joined PSG for two years.
Gonzalo Higuaín also spoke about his own future at Inter Miami. The former Real Madrid striker mentioned taking a year off from the sport and said:
“With Inter Miami I have one more year of contract, then I will take a year off, away from football and everything.”
Lionel Messi started his first match with PSG in the Champions League
Lionel Messi is off to a slow start to his career at PSG. The 34-year-old made his Ligue 1 debut against Reims off the bench. However, a couple of weeks later, Messi made his first start for his new team against Club Brugge in the Champions League.
As things stand, Lionel Messi has yet to open his account for PSG. However, it should be a matter of time before the six-time Ballon d’Or winner begins to show his magic in France.
PSG have a great game at the weekend. The Parisian giants face Olympique Lyonnais in what could be Lionel Messi’s first game against his new home crowd.
