Football superstar Lionel Messi has officially confirmed his impending transfer to Major League Soccer (MLS) team, Inter Miami, this summer. The 35-year-old Argentine forward was previously linked with a potential return to his former club, Barcelona, where he established himself as one of the greatest players in the history of the sport.
However, in an interview with Mundo Deportivo, Messi revealed his desire to avoid causing financial inconvenience to the reigning LaLiga champions. As a result, he has made the decision to embark on a new chapter of his career by joining Inter Miami in the United States.
“I really wanted to return, I was very excited to be able to return, but, on the other hand, after having experienced what I experienced when I left, I didn’t want to be in the same situation again.
“Although I heard that La Liga had accepted my return and everything was fine, many other things also needed to happen.
“I heard that Barça needed to sell players and reduce salaries, I didn’t want to go through all of that.”
Messi’s move to Inter Miami marks a significant milestone in the growth and appeal of MLS, as one of the world’s most iconic footballers brings his immense talent and star power to the American league. Fans eagerly await his arrival and anticipate witnessing his exceptional skills showcased on the MLS stage.
