Lionel Messi's move surprised the football world last summer when he left PSG and Europe to join the MLS in the United States. Messi's move has definitely impacted the MLS on the positive side. Apple TV subscriptions have skyrocketed due to Messi joining the league. The attendance rate in MLS stadiums has risen, as well as the prices. This will be Lionel Messi's first full MLS season, and he has already sold out the Inter Miami Chase Stadium and the recent game against LA Galaxy in the Dignity Health Sports Park.

The Inter Miami players who were already in the squad last year were excited to hear the news that one of the best players in football history will join them in the squad. Inter Miami was last in the MLS Eastern Conference before Messi arrived and finished a position higher with more wins. Messi also helped the club win their first-ever trophy by winning the 2023 Leagues Cup.

A player who joined Inter Miami early this year is Julian Gressel. He won the MLS Cup last year with the Colombus Crew. He recently spoke about the first time talking to Lionel Messi and described how Messi seems like a normal person instead of being one of the best footballers of all time. Gressel spoke to Sport 1 and said, "When I first saw him, he was in the locker room. I came in and said good morning and introduced myself as Julian, and he said: 'I'm Leo.' Once you've practiced a little with him, it doesn't take long to start joking around with him, whether in his English or my Spanish. He is a very normal person."
