Inter Miami project : Messi David Beckham’s club in pole position for PSG ace Lionel Messi

Inter Mia­mi have giv­en big impe­tus to their ambi­tious plans to sign Lionel Mes­si from French cham­pi­ons PSG, accord­ing to French reports.

Mes­si’s con­tract with PSG expires at the end of the sea­son, with the pos­si­bil­i­ty of extend­ing the stay of the World Cup winner.

But France’s L’E­quipe reports that Mes­si is increas­ing­ly hes­i­tant about extend­ing his con­tract with the Parisian team.

The report said MLS side Inter Mia­mi are keen to sign the for­mer Barcelona star.

Inter Mia­mi are owned by for­mer PSG play­er David Beck­ham and man­aged by Phil Neville.

Accord­ing to L’E­quipe, the Argen­tin­ian star’s fam­i­ly wants to live in Amer­i­ca, as Mes­si has a house in Mia­mi where he often spends his holidays.

Last month, Inter Mia­mi man­ag­er Neville did not rule out sign­ing the Argen­tine star.

“We want to bring the best play­er in the world to this club and he’s prob­a­bly the best play­er, so the pic­ture has­n’t changed for us at all,” he said.

It’s com­pli­cat­ed to sign a play­er of that lev­el. It takes time.

The sev­en-time Bal­lon d’Or win­ner, who is rep­re­sent­ed by his father Jorge, met with PSG rep­re­sen­ta­tives on Wednesday.

PSG’s No. 10 is in his sec­ond sea­son, and has grown sig­nif­i­cant­ly with 10 goals and 10 assists in 18 Ligue 1 games so far.

He has scored five goals in sev­en appear­ances in the Cham­pi­ons League but was unable to pre­vent a 1–0 defeat to Bay­ern Munich in the first leg of the last 16 of the Cham­pi­ons League.

A Cham­pi­ons League exit at the hands of the Ger­mans will only add to the noise sur­round­ing Mes­si’s future.
