Lionel Messi, one of the greatest footballers of all time, has decided to open a new chapter in his career.
After spending his entire professional career with FC Barcelona, Messi has made the decision to join Inter Miami. Inter Miami, co-owned by former football superstar David Beckham, has emerged as an ambitious club in the MLS.
This groundbreaking transfer has caused a stir throughout the soccer world and promises to redefine the landscape of American soccer.
Saudi Arabian clubs vied for Messi’s signature at the prospect of bringing one of the greatest players of all time to their league. The offer included a substantial financial package – reportedly close to half a billion dollars annually – as well as the opportunity to play in a region that has invested heavily in soccer in recent years.
However, despite the enticing offer, Messi ultimately turned it down and opted for a move to Inter Miami. Chances are good that he will be seen playing on the field for Inter Miami as early as July. The contract reportedly runs for 2.5 years, with an extension option.
By declining the Saudi Arabian offer, Messi has showcased his commitment to more than just financial gains. It highlights his desire to be part of a project that aligns with his personal and professional aspirations. While the financial aspect of the offer was undoubtedly significant, Messi’s decision emphasizes his focus on sporting ambition, personal development, and leaving a lasting impact on the clubs and communities he represents.
Messi’s move could serve as a magnet for other star athletes and could also have a significant impact on the real estate market.
At this moment, Messi already owns four units in Sunny Isles. A unit on the 47th floor at the Porsche Design Building, two units on the 40th and 43rd floors of the nearby Trump Royale tower and one condo at the Regalia.
The soccer star moves with his wife Antonela Roccuzzo and their three children.
Therefore the question arises whether there is enough space in one of his properties or if there is already a new deal on the table?
We can’t wait to find out more about his life Miami.
