Lionel Messi Makes Grand Arrival in Florida ahead of Move to Inter Miami

Lionel Messi

“The World Cup winner is expected to put pen to paper on a two and a half year deal, reported to be worth $60 million a year, before being presented to fans at a stadium event on Sunday.”

Argentine football sensation, Lionel Messi, touched down in Florida on Tuesday, creating a frenzy amongst eager fans awaiting his arrival at Inter Miami, a US Major League Soccer (MLS) club. Captured on ESPN television footage, the star was seen stepping off a private jet at a small, executive airport adjacent to Inter Miami’s Fort Lauderdale stadium.

“Messi is the biggest name player to ever move to MLS and the most famous to head to the United States since Brazilian great Pele signed for the New York Cosmos in 1975.”

MLS has pinned its hopes on Messi to not only elevate the league’s profile but also boost subscriptions for their streaming broadcasting partnership with Apple TV. The anticipation surrounding his arrival has propelled ticket prices for games involving him to skyrocket. Additionally, Messi’s entry into MLS adds momentum to the sport as the United States, Canada, and Mexico eagerly prepare to host the 2026 World Cup.

“Miami owner Jorge Mas has suggested Messi and Busquets could be part of ‘three to five’ new signings for the South Florida club in the current transfer window.”

In an exciting development, it is expected that Messi will be joined by former Barcelona teammate, Sergio Busquets, at Inter Miami. Club owner, Jorge Mas, has even hinted at the possibility of three to five new signings for the South Florida club during the current transfer window. Speculation is rife that Spanish full-back Jordi Alba, another former Barcelona player, may also make a move to the team, which is co-owned by retired England and Manchester United star, David Beckham.

“Miami are currently bottom of MLS’s Eastern Conference with just five wins from 21 games and are ranked 28th out of the 29 teams in the league.”

While Inter Miami may be struggling in the league, sitting at the bottom of MLS’s Eastern Conference, they have managed to secure a spot in the semi-finals of the U.S. Open Cup. Drawn against league-leaders FC Cincinnati, the club has an opportunity to turn their fortunes around and potentially secure a major title.

“During his time with Barca, Messi won ten Spanish league titles, seven Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) titles and four Champions League winners medals.”

Having spent the last two seasons at Paris Saint-Germain, Messi solidified his status as one of the greatest footballers of all time. However, it was during his time at Barcelona, where he won numerous accolades, including ten Spanish league titles, seven Copa del Rey titles, and four Champions League winners medals. Notably, Messi also played a key role in Argentina’s victory at the 2021 World Cup, scoring twice in the final and lifting the trophy as captain.

In his highly anticipated debut for Inter Miami, Messi is set to take the field on July 21 against Mexican club Cruz Azul. As he embarks on this new chapter of his career, fans across the globe eagerly await the magic and brilliance that only Lionel Messi can deliver.
