New York: It has been officially announced that Lionel Messi, the star player of the Argentine football team, has joined the Inter Miami football club in the United States.
Lionel Messi, who played for Barcelona for a long time, left two years ago due to disagreements with the management of the team. He was subsequently signed to play for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) for two years. He left PSG after his contract expired last week.
Due to this, the expectation of which team he will join has arisen among the world football fans. That aside, he was expected to rejoin his old club Barcelona. It was almost confirmed by his father Jorge Messi, Barcelona team leader. At the same time, Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal team and American club Inter Miami were also reported to be trying to sign Messi. In this context, Messi has chosen the Inter Miami team.
Messi, who confirmed this at the beginning of last month, said, “I am joining Inter Miami. This result is 100 percent sure. If money is all that matters I’ll join a club in Saudi Arabia. But, the truth is that I have a different opinion. It’s not about money,” he said.
Now the official announcement regarding this has been released. Inter Miami confirmed Messi joining their team by posting a video on the club’s Twitter page.
The FIFA World Cup 2026 is scheduled to be held in the United States, Mexico and Canada. In this environment, Messi, who won the 2022 World Cup, is expected to play for the club team of the United States and give a new leap to the game of football.
