“MLS could be the second or third best league in the world if Messi joins,” Inter Miami owner hopes

After leaving Europe, Lionel Messi, 36, of Inter Miami, will be living in the United States.

The Argentina captain of the 2022 Qatar World Cup champions has ended his European career with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and moved to Inter Miami of the Major League Soccer (MLS).

Messi had hoped to return to Barcelona this summer, but the club’s financial problems prevented him from doing so, so he headed to Inter Miami on March 8. The club is co-owned by England national team superstar David Beckham.

According to CNN, one of the club’s co-owners, Jorge Mas, expressed his excitement about Messi in an interview with Spain’s El Pais.

“The arrival of the World Cup-winning captain will take the league to the next level,” he said, adding that it could be one of the top two or three leagues in the world.

Mas also explained that the club worked hard to bring Messi to Miami. According to Mas, Messi’s father and agent, Jorge Messi, and David Beckham have been in constant negotiations for three years.

Messi has become the highest-paid player in MLS. He earns between $50 million and $60 million (about $65.5 billion to $78.5 billion). The previous highest paid player was Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri (Chicago Fire). Shaqiri earned $8.153 million (approximately $10.7 billion).

According to Forbes, Messi’s total income is more than the $75 million salary earned by Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr), who plays for Saudi Arabia.

To that end, the Miami brass has agreed to give Messi a share of the revenue from the Apple TV broadcasting deal, the MLS’s broadcasting rights, as well as a share of the revenue from the sale of the team’s kit, Adidas. He will also have the opportunity to own part of the club after he retires. 메이저토토사이트

Meanwhile, Messi’s debut will likely be in the League Cup against Crewe Azzur on Oct. 22 at 9 a.m. Inter Miami is in 15th place, at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. In 19 matches, they have won five, drawn one and lost 13. With just 16 points, Miami is three points behind 14th-place Toronto (19).
