Lionel Messi to Inter Miami in the United States is confirmed by the MLS side amid recent Chelsea interest
The Major League Soccer side Inter Miami have announced the signing of the world’s best Lionel Messi through a ‘point made’ tweet.
After it was confirmed that Messi will leave Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) this summer, there were strong links of him moving to Saudi Arabia amidst heavy financial offers from Al-Hilal. A return to Barcelona was also a possibility, but it quickly died down to Financial Fair Play regulations. Chelsea were also interested in him, but it never seemed a realistic dream to get him.
The Argentine master will now play his football in the United States, a country that will host the 2026 FIFA World Cup. Having him there in the lead-up to that tournament would be good for that country from a marketing view.
The great man admitted that his time in Paris was not a happy one for him and his family. He was apparently booed by his own fans when the team came out to celebrate the league title win. PSG, as a club, are rotten to the core.
Although it never seemed likely that Chelsea will sign the 35-year-old, how good it would have been to have the greatest of all time playing in the Premier League.
For the Blues, it is about doing the right things in the coming summer window to help Mauricio Pochettino build a team that gets back to the top four next season.
The club must sell a few players before buying ones to avoid squad congestion. Getting a striker, a goalkeeper and two midfielders should be in their minds to sign before the end of August.
Lastly, on Messi, we wish him all the best in America. It is time for the fans over there to witness the magic of the boy who came from Rosario.

At Chelsea, we are better off focusing on more attainable targets. One wise strategy would be to balance out the signing of youngsters by bringing in proven, experienced players. They don’t have to be as old or expensive as Messi (35) but there is no harm thinking along the lines of signing proven world-beaters.
