Messi has been tipped to join David Beckham's Inter Miami, and this summer could be the perfect opportunity for the Argentine to stamp his authority in the USA before he draws the curtains on a memorable career. La Pulga's contract with PSG expires this summer and the Argentine has been heavily linked with a switch to Inter Miami. While Barcelona are also vying for a fairytale return for Messi, the Catalan's financial troubles could open the door for Messi to move to MLS.
As Barcelona continue their level-best to make sure Messi returns to La Liga after spending two years away from Spain, Joan Laporta will have to trim his wage bill to make this dream a reality. It remains to be seen where Messi's future lies with multiple doors open for the veteran.
