Argentina soccer star Lionel Messi is set to join the American soccer club Inter Miami, as reported by ESPN. This move comes after the conclusion of Messi’s two-year contract with the French soccer club Paris St-Germain.

Before accepting the offer from Miami, Messi had also received a proposal from the Saudi Arabian soccer club Al-Hilal, which would have placed him in the same league as Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

According to the BBC, speculations arose that Messi’s decision to join Miami was influenced by factors unrelated to soccer, such as the lifestyle and the brand endorsement deals he would receive, including partnerships with Adidas and Apple.

This transfer will mark the first time Messi plays for a club team outside of Europe. Prior to his tenure at Paris St-Germain, Messi spent 21 years with FC Barcelona, where he scored 672 goals, won four Champions League titles, seven Spanish Cups, and 10 La Liga titles.

In 2021, Messi left Barcelona and began his two-year stint with Paris St-Germain. During his time there, he scored 32 goals in 75 games and finished the most recent season with 16 goals and 16 assists.

Throughout his career, Messi has also represented Argentina’s national team. With nearly 20 years of international play and five World Cup appearances, he led Argentina to victory in the 2022 tournament.

Originally, Messi had hoped to return to Barcelona, but due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) limitations, a reunion with his former club was not possible.

In addition to his recent World Cup triumph, Messi has been awarded the Ballon d’Or, the accolade for the world’s best player, a record seven times.
