Inter Miami trying to lure Messi while Barcelona is yet to make a move

Even as Barcelona is still mentioned as a potential destination for Lionel Messi, MLS side Inter Miami are prepared to step up their efforts to acquire him from PSG

To entice Messi to the MLS this summer, Inter Miami is prepared to give him a share of the club. At the conclusion of the current campaign, the 35-year-old’s PSG contract will terminate. Although a one-year extension at the same salary is an option, he wants to learn about the team’s intentions for the following season before making a choice.

Messi isn’t sure if he will sign a new contract with PSG because the French champions are still unsure of who their manager will be or how their frontline will appear the following season. Clubs both inside and outside of Europe have expressed interest in it. Messi is believed to have declined a massive deal worth more than €400 million per year from Saudi Arabian giants Al Hilal. Inter Miami is now attempting to entice him to relocate to the USA by giving him a share of the club’s equity because they do not want to fall behind.

According to the story, the David Beckham-owned team has been in discussions with the World Cup champions’ group for some time. The MLS has also spoken with Jorge Messi, the football icon’s father and representative. Inter Miami will face a challenge in their attempt to acquire the 35-year-old because he prefers to stay in Europe for at least another year.

The Independent story, which disputes assertions from Spanish and Argentine media, claims that Barcelona has not yet contacted Messi about a summer transfer. They haven’t even attempted to reach their former captain about a proposal, much less make a firm offer. There hasn’t yet been a formal approach from Barça, despite the fact that manager Xavi Hernandez has been in regular communication with Messi, according to the report. Additionally, the primary purpose of last month’s meeting between Joan Laporta and Jorge Messi was to discuss a memorial game for the 35-year-old.

The Premier League is rumoured to have a passing interest, but no firm proposals have come from them either. PSG, Al Hilal, and Inter Miami are the only teams to have formally proposed to Messi as of right now. However, rumours claim that Barcelona might make an approach to their club legend this week. There is a proposal worth €10 million per year being discussed, but until the FFP situation is resolved, there will be doubts about the Catalans’ capacity to sign him.
