As Major League Soccer enters an extended break in play due to the FIFA international window, the latest rumor about Lionel Messi joining one of the league's teams has surfaced.
We’ve said it before and it’s worth repeating: Transfer rumors typically don’t get much play in this space. But when an iconic player of Lionel Messi's stature is being linked to a possible move to MLS, exceptions can and will be made. It’s also worth noting this isn’t the first time this year that Messi’s been linked with a move to MLS, but it is the latest episode of it.
And, of course, David Beckham’s Inter Miami CF project is in the fray. Sport.ES, based in Spain’s Catalan region, reported that Messi’s current negotiation to re-sign for FC Barcelona as part of a 10-year deal that includes both on- and off-field roles also features a multi-year stay at Inter Miami.
Does this report have more teeth than reports this past winter of a contract with City Football Group that suggested Messi would jump to Manchester City and later to New York City FC? Who knows? But one thing we know for sure is that it’s worth keeping occasional tabs on Messi’s possible movements and that’s even more true if MLS is being mentioned alongside his name.
