Inter Miami chief Chris Henderson has broken his silence on rumours linking the Major League Soccer side with a sensational move for .
and England legend , according to reports.
Messi, who joined PSG in 2021 after ending his 21-year association with Barcelona, has entered the final 12 months of his contract in the French capital.
While PSG are desperate for Messi to sign a contract extension, a number of rival clubs have begun to express interest in signing one of the best players of all-time.
Barcelona are reportedly keen for Messi to make a sensational and emotional return to the Nou Camp, where he scored 672 goals in 778 games and won 10 league titles and four Champions Leagues.
Messi has previously suggested he could return to his former club but may now be swayed by an audacious swoop from Beckham’s Inter Miami.
It is claimed Miami – who finished sixth in the MLS Eastern Conference this season – are planning to make Messi the biggest signing in the club’s history and are growing confident of striking a deal.
The talks are so advanced that Inter Milan now ‘expect’ Messi to join the club and sign a contract in the coming months.
Inter Miami chief Henderson has now spoken about a potential move for the Argentina hero and said: ‘I knew Messi would come up!
‘It’s great to be connected with amazing players. I don’t want to comment on someone who’s not on our roster.’
Jorge and Jose Mas – the brothers who co-own Inter Miami alongside Beckham – are leading the negotiations and several meetings have taken place with Messi’s father, Jorge.
Talks will be put on hold until the Qatar World Cup finishes but Messi is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with another club in January.
