Major League Soccer has considerably increased its level in recent yearss. Part of the notable improvement in the tournament has had to do with the great signings that the clubs have made. He Miami Inter It has been one of the teams that has made the best signings. But David Beckham’s team still has its great whim: Lionel Messi.
Despite the fact that many might consider that the possible arrival of Messi at Inter Miami would be just a passing rumor, the club’s own coach, Phil Neville, confirmed the team’s interest in acquiring the historic Albiceleste player. In addition to “La Pulga”, the Miami team would also go after Sergio Busquets.
“I am not going to deny it and say that there is no truth in the speculation that we are interested in Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets (…) We want to bring the best players in the world to this soccer club. Messi and Busquets are two of the most prominent in recent years. They are great players who would still be a great benefit to the club and to MLS, it would be a game changer. If Leo Messi arrived at the club, he would be the most important signing in the history of sports in the United States”, Neville said at a press conference.
Contractual data of Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets
Fortunately for Inter Miami, the leaders of the club should only present a juicy contract to Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets. Both the Argentine and the Spaniard end their contract in June 2023. So far there has been no information to ensure that PSG and FC Barcelona would have the renewal of these two players fully assured.
In this sense, the outlook is quite favorable for David Beckham’s team to try to persuade these two legends of world football. Faced with this possibility, Neville explained that the MLS landscape would change completely with the arrival of players of this magnitude.
“Life will change. Things will be different. The trees could have to be bigger (near the training ground). Security might have to be tighter. The path that players take today to that stadium, that might have to be different. The journey may be different. The hotels we stay at might have to be different. But really that might be what we aspire to be anyway. It’s exciting, but I think it would be a great challenge.”, he added.
