David Beckham eyeing to snatch up Leo Messi and Sergio Busquets for his team Inter Miami in MLS

David Beckham, the former Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, still has hope that Leo Messi, the superstar of Argentina, and Sergio Busquets, the veteran Barcelona midfielder, will play together this summer for Inter Miami, thanks in large part to the club’s transfer dealings on Wednesday.


Lionel Messi signed a two-year contract with the French giants following his departure from FC Barcelona in 2021. That contract will be expiring in June, and there are no signs of a contract extension as of yet.

Beckham, who owns the MLS club Inter Miami, has kept an eye on the Lionel Messi transfer saga the whole time. He has previously stated his desire to bring the 7 times Ballon d’Or winner to America, and the transfer deals done by the club on Wednesday have only given a boost to that hope.

Inter Miami has obtained $1.3 million in General Allocation Money (GAM). According to a tweet posted by MLS journalist Tom Bogert, this money will substantially boost the chances of Inter Miami signing Messi and his former Barcelona teammate Sergio Busquets.

The Herons have also secured the services of Kamal Miller, who is a Canadian defender, from CF Montreal in exchange for Ariel Lassiter and Bryce Duke.

Where could Leo Messi and Sergio Busquets play next season?

Both of these players have contracts ending in June. However, according to many speculations, Leo Messi has reportedly asked Busquets to remain at Camp Nou, where he could potentially join after his contract with Les Parisiens expires. FC Barcelona are also very determined to keep their current captain and bring their legendary Argentinian talisman back to Camp Nou. 

Many other clubs have reportedly stated their interest in signing the 2022 World Cup champion, including Manchester United, River Plate, and Saudi League club Al-Hilal. The Saudi club has reportedly put in a massive offer for Lionel Messi that will make him the highest paid athlete on earth.

However, Messi has expressed his desire to remain in Europe for at least another year, and he’d like to compete for his fifth Champions League title.
