Lionel Messi near joining David Beckham's Bury Miami in memorable MLS bargain

Lionel Messi could be teaming up with David Beckham in Major League Soccer.

The Argentina legend is close to formalizing an agreement to join the Beckham

co-owned Inter Miami in a free transfer from Paris-Saint Germain in the summer of 2023

that would make him the highest-paid player in the history of MLS, according to the Sunday Times.

The 35-year-old Messi, who already has a home in Miami,

is second in soccer history behind Cristiano Ronaldo with 764 career goals

for club and country ahead of Argentina’s next World Cup match in Qatar on Wednesday against Poland.

A World Cup title has eluded Messi in four previous tries in his career with Argentina,

but he netted the go-ahead goal in Saturday’s win over Mexico following a stunning 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia to open the tournament.

Inter Miami, which finished its third MLS season in sixth place in the Eastern Conference before losing in the first round of the playoffs to NYCFC in October,

is slated to begin construction soon on a billion-dollar stadium near Miami airport that is slated to open in 2025.
