Lionel Messi, a forward for Paris Saint-Germain, is expected to depart the Ligue 1 team and join Inter Miami.
David Beckham, the club’s co-owner, revealed in an interview that he had begun negotiations with the Argentine. Messi is nearing the end of his PSG deal, which runs through June 2023.
On its official website, The Athletic acknowledged that negotiations between Messi’s camp and Inter Miami had begun in secret. Jorge and Jose Mas, the brothers who co-own Inter Miami, reportedly met with Messi’s father Jorge several times to discuss a prospective transfer.
PSG, though, is optimistic that Messi will sign a new contract after the current one expires.
