Lionel Messi ‘impatient’ to get started with new chapter at Paris St Germain

David Beckham has already been in talks with Lionel Messi about the Argentinian superstar ending his career at Inter Miami.

The Inter Miami owner who has promised to bring a super star to South Florida and also has Cristiano Ronaldo in his sights has set the ball rolling with Messi.

Messi after a tearful farewell from Barcelona has penned a two year contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

But Mirror Sport can reveal that a few weeks ago the 34-year-old forward was in Miami buying up six luxury penthouse apartments in the city.

It appears that he has already, through Beckham’s approach, started planning his next move once his French journey is completed.

And like Beckham when he signed for LA Galaxy the likelihood is that Messi will also be offered the future opportunity to buy an MLS franchise when he eventually quits playing.

With Phil Neville in charge Inter Miami are struggling to reach the end of season play offs and Beckham is determined to bring in big names who can help change their fortunes.

He has also been monitoring developments at Juventus with former Manchester United star Ronaldo.

But Messi is at the forefront of not just Beckham’s thoughts but also other members of the Inter Miami ownership – notably co-owner Jorge Mas.

He insisted back in June that he is “optimistic” that Messi – who hasn’t hid his desire to end his career in America – would play for Inter Miami before hanging up his boots.

“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,” Mas told the Miami Herald .

He added: “David and I have been working really hard, we have aspirations of bringing the best players here and Messi is a generational player, arguably the best player of all time.”









Messi is yet to feature for the French club since his arrival earlier this month.

The Argentine, 34, is working towards getting fully match fit.

In his absence, Les Parisiens have got off to an unbeaten start in Ligue 1, and defeated Brest 4-2 in a thriller on Friday night.

Messi’s debut could come at Stade de Reims in the coming week.
