The change has been in place for a long time, now it’s official: soccer world star Lionel Messi has signed with Inter Miami. Club co-owner David Beckham is particularly happy. The world champion is not just staying for a year, but his salary is tough.
Inter Miami officially welcomed soccer world champion Lionel Messi on Saturday and announced the exact contract term. Accordingly, the 36-year-old Messi committed to the club from the American Major League Soccer (MLS) for two seasons until 2025. The change of the Argentine national player had been certain for a long time.
According to the AP news agency, the seven-time world footballer earns between 50 and 60 million US dollars a year in Miami. Messi is quoted as saying in a club statement that he is very happy to take the next step in his career in Miami. “This is a fantastic opportunity and together we will continue to build this beautiful project.”
Messi’s signing is a dream come true for David Beckham, co-owner of Inter Miami, according to the club’s statement. “I couldn’t be prouder to have a player of Leo’s caliber join our club,” said the former England international. He can’t wait to see Messi on the pitch. Messi’s first appearance in the new kit is set to come on July 21 when Miami open the Leagues Cup against Mexican club Cruz Azul.
Messi’s contract with his old club Paris Saint-Germain expired after two years, and he did not return to his long-time club FC Barcelona. The offensive player recently emphasized in an interview that he did not want to simply end his career in the North American soccer league MLS.
