Lionel Messi, at least for now, isn’t ready to make the jump to MLS.
Such a jump to one of MLS’s newest teams would be incredible, and make him the biggest star to ever join the league.
Messi’s agent, though, shut that down.
Messi joined PSG last year on a two-year deal worth more than $35 million a year. The Argentinian had spent his entire 17-year career with FC Barcelona before making the jump to France’s top league, and he won 10 LaLiga titles and four Champions League titles. He had agreed to a five-year deal with Barcelona before leaving, but the club was unable to pay for him after LaLiga dropped its salary cap.
Messi has hinted that he would be open to playing in the United States before, something several other big names in the sport have done at the end of their careers.
While bringing Messi in would be huge for both Inter Miami and MLS as a whole, it sounds like such a move isn’t going to happen next year.
