Argentina icon, Lionel Messi is currently taking a well-earned vacation in Miami, Florida after leading his country to the 2021 Copa America title, which was his first major international trophy with the La Albiceleste and their first Copa America honour since 1993.

However, reports in Europe claim that there is more than meets the eye considering that Messi has been heavily linked with a move to David Beckham's, Major League Soccer (MLS), Inter Miami side in the near future.

Reports in the past claimed that the 34-year-old had already agreed to join Inter Miami after playing two-more years with Barcelona, though it is understood that his recent contract with the Catalan giants will be for five-years.

Jorge Mas, who is a co-owner of Inter Miami has not shyed from talking about Messi in the past, revealing that they are very keen to get him on board.

“I am optimistic Messi will play in an Inter Miami shirt because I think it will complete the legacy of the greatest player in our generation and will meet with the ambitions of the owners of Inter Miami to build a world-class team," he said in the past.

It was rumoured that the Argentinian was in the crowd during Inter's 5-0 loss to New England Revolution, though nothing has been confirmed on his presence as yet. However, everything regarding Messi to the MLS currently remains rumours, and it will be interesting to see what he does decide to do in the foreseeable future.
