Inter Miami are doing their first international tour this preseason. While preparing for the start of the Major League Soccer tournament, which will be at the end of February, they traveled to Asia to play several friendly matches: last Monday they lost 4-3 against Al-Hilal and this Thursday they will face Al-Nassr, for the Riyadh Season Cup. Then they will travel to Hong Kong to play against an all-star team of the local league and finally they will face Vissel Kobe in Japan.

Once that match is over, The Herons will return to America to face the final stage of the preseason. The last friendly will be on February 15 at the DRV PNK Stadium against Newell's Old Boys from Argentina. This opponent was not chosen at random, but was the result of an effort by the club's chiefs to make Lionel Messi happy. The Argentine side is the team that Leo has been a fan of since he was a child and where he played before moving to Barcelona at the age of 13. Coincidentally, it is also the club of coach Gerardo Martino.

That is why it will be a very special match for them, and obviously also for Newell's fans. A former star of the Argentine National Team, who was Messi's teammate for more than a decade, plays there: Ever Banega. The midfielder shined in clubs such as Atlético Madrid and Sevilla, and this year he returned to the Rosario team to play the final stage of his professional career there.

This week Banega gave an interview to TNT Sports and, when asked about the match they will play against Inter Miami, he surprised everyone with an unexpected proposal for Leo: "I hope he plays half of the match for each team. It would be great if he could wear the Newell's Old Boys jersey". This would be a historic moment for the Argentine club, considering that Messi never played professionally there.

What did Lionel say about Newell's?

A short time ago, during an interview with Miguel Granados, Messi spoke about the possibility of returning to Newell's: "I always wanted to, personally, especially after being World Cup champion, to be able to enjoy Argentine soccer, to play for Newell's, when I was a kid and used to go there. It was my dream to play there".
