Lionel Messi’s representatives respond to Inter Miami transfer rumours

Lionel Messi has been linked with a move to MLS outfit Inter Miami.

Messi joined PSG in the summer of 2021 from long-time club, Barcelona.

The Argentine went on to have a solid season, scoring 11 goals and providing 15 assists in 34 outings.

Such a record for the majority of players, especially at 34, would be very good. However, there were some that argued that Messi was not at his best.

In 2022/23, however, at the age of 35, Messi has hit the ground running. In 17 games for PSG, he has already scored 12 and assisted 13.

Proving he can still go at the age of 35, Barcelona fans would no doubt love to see Messi return to the Camp Nou at some point in the near future.

However, it looks as though the Argentine could be MLS-bound. Messi is in the final year of his current contract with PSG.

And on Sunday, The Times reported that Inter Miami are close to agreeing a deal with Lionel Messi, with the US club confident that the Argentina superstar will sign after the World Cup in Qatar.

But not too long after this report, Lionel Messi’s representative has responded to the rumour and denied it:

“It’s false, it’s fake news. There is no negotiation for Lionel to join Inter Miami next season,” Messi’s representative, Marcelo Méndez, said in a statement to CNN.
