Negotiations for Messi’s arrival to Inter Miami have progressed the farthest, with Jorge and Jose Mas; the brothers who co-own the MLS club alongside Beckham, leading the talks with utmost sobriety to bring Messi to the United States.

No deal has been finalized yet, but if the move becomes successful, Messi’s arrival in MLS could have a significant impact on the United States football profile like Beckham’s move to LA Galaxy did in 2007, especially with the World Cup coming to the USA in 2026.

After a tough debut season in French football, in which the 35-year-old Argentina captain managed only six Ligue 1 goals, Messi has rediscovered his form and is now scoring and assisting consistently.

Lionel Messi’s form has been rejuvenated this season, with the Argentine captain netting 12 goals in all competitions and registering 13 league assists in just 12 appearances; the fastest he has ever reached.

If the transfer materialized, Lionel Messi would undoubtedly become the MLS and Inter Miami’s most high-profile footballer of all time in a city where his family had already acquired a property.
