The shocking news broke on Wednesday that Lionel Messi, the Argentinean and Barcelona legend, has decided to join American Club Inter Miami. Messi had announced earlier this week that he was leaving PSG. However, there were strong reports of him returning to Barcelona.
This will mark the end of the Messi/Ronaldo era for European football. Lionel Messi received a four-year deal worth $54 million per year earlier this week. It is no doubt that the confirmation of this news will break the hearts and minds of Barcelona fans who were eager to see their mercurial star wear the Blaugrana once again.
The confirmed contract agreement has not yet been made public. La Pulga’s joining David Beckham’s team will be a major step forward for both the league and La Pulga. Messi has one of the most marketable names in sports. The signing of Messi or Cristiano Cristiano has almost always led to a massive boost in social media accounts as well as shirt sales.
