As contacted by RMC Sport, the entourage of Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi has denied any contact with MLS side Inter Miami, and by extension any possible agreement with the Americans.
The Times had reported earlier today that the Argentine was on the verge of a move across the pond for next season, with the deal to be signed after the World Cup.
Messi, who in Florida could be joined by former teammates Luis Suárez and Cesc Fàbregas among other potential arrivals, will only make a decision on his future after the tournament in Qatar. His contract with the Ligue 1 champions expires at the end of the season, having signed an initial two-year deal when he arrived as a free agent in the summer of 2021.
RMC Sport, on their end, say that Messi is indeed in talks with Inter Miami despite PSG’s best efforts to hold on to the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner. and that the situation will accelerate after the World Cup ends.
According to the English newspaper, the figure of David Beckham, president of the club, would be decisive. The former footballer, ambassador of the World Cup in Qatar, would have a direct line with the ownership of PSG, moreover, like Pulce, he is linked to Adidas. The deal would make the 35-year-old Argentine the highest-paid player in MLS history.
It should be noted that Messi already has a home in Miami and is enjoying his holidays there with his family. Last year, he also told Spanish media that playing in the United States has always been his dream.
Messi has a contract with the Parisian club until June and currently receives almost one million and 400 thousand euros a week. Al-Khelaïfi’s club could try to extend his stay at the Parco dei Principi, but according to the Times, Pulce’s future is in MLS, at David Beckham’s Inter Miami.
