Lionel Messi Touches Down in Fort Lauderdale to Officially Join Inter Miami

Lionel Messi is living the dream of every footballer. At 36, the Argentine has virtually completed football. Argentina’s World Cup victory in Qatar last December handed him the only trophy missing from his cabinet, and that settled the debate of who the greatest footballer of all time is.

The 36-year-old’s move to Inter Miami may not make sense to everyone, but it is deserved. After two lackluster seasons at PSG, Messi has decided to leave Europe in favor of a move to the MLS, where he’ll link up with David Beckham’s Inter Miami and other familiar faces. Nonetheless, he has earned that right.

Miami is the perfect place for the seven times Ballon d’Or winner to spend the next few years of his glittering career. While many will argue that the MLS is a step down from European football, the reality is that the move makes sense for Lionel Messi at this point in his career.

In a video shared by ESPN on Twitter, the Barcelona legend was seen walking off a private jet in Fort Lauderdale with his wife and three kids into a waiting bus, with paparazzi all over the 36-year-old. The truth is the world can’t wait to see Lionel Messi turn out for his new team, but Inter Miami and the MLS are making the most of it by making his unveiling the most popular event in the league’s history.

To announce Messi’s importance to his club, David Beckham has taken some time to paint a mural of Messi in the streets of Miami. The Englishman is basking in the reality that the great Lionel Messi will turn out for his team in the new MLS season. He is doing all he can to make the Argentine feel welcome at his new club, hoping that his overall impact in the MLS will surpass anyone’s imagination.
