Thunderbolt: Leo Messi leaves Europe for Inter Miami
A world champion in Miami
After rumors of a possible return to FC Barcelona or a transfer to Saudi Arabia, Leo Messi has decided to join Major League Soccer and Inter Miami. The Argentinian, the 2022 world champion, has accepted an offer of $50 million per season from the franchise owned by David Beckham. He signed a contract for two seasons.
End of the Parisian adventure
Leo Messi had considered extending his contract with Paris Saint-Germain but a deal was never finalised. His last appearance at the Parc des Princes was marked by a suspension and whistles. FC Barcelona also tried to bring Messi back to Catalonia, but the club's financial problems prevented this possibility.
Possible reunion with former teammates in Miami
It's possible that Messi will be joined in Florida by his former FC Barcelona teammates Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba. Luis Suarez, who has a special clause to leave Grêmio, could also head for the North American franchise.
