The future of Leo Messi is unknown. Last summer he signed with PSG until June 2023, but rumors about his next destination do not cease. The player's father, in fact, expressed his desire, this past weekend, for him to return to Camp Nou, a desire applauded and supported by Joan Laporta. But this hypothetical possibility is getting further away every day: in Argentina, they assure that his career will continue at Inter Miami in the MLS.

According to Direct TV, the Albiceleste international plans to acquire a 35% stake in Inter Miami and then join the U.S. team in 2023, once his contract with PSG expires. Next season he will therefore continue to compete in Europe, where competition is higher and he will be able to better prepare for the World Cup in Qatar, which takes place at the end of this year. The Major League Soccer (MLS) outfit is valued at $625 million.
Messi would pay what Neymar cost to PSG to become a partner
Neymar cost PSG in 2017, 222 million euros, and now that Messi wants to become a partner of Inter Miami would pay an amount close to what the French team paid at the time for the Brazilian player.
The 35% of the MLS team according to the 625 million dollars in which it is valued, represents 218 million dollars, which in euros would be equivalent to 207 million euros, 15 million less than what Neymar cost.
The player, who has a home in the American city, has always looked forward to the possibility of playing in MLS. "I've always said I'd like to experience the US league, but it's not for now," the former captain said a year and a half ago. David Beckham, one of Inter Miami's owners, has been toying with the possibility of signing him for years.
In his first season at PSG, Messi has played 33 games, scored 11 goals, and provided 13 assists.
