Lionel Messi and Inter Miami are ‘screwed’ ahead of new MLS season

Lionel Messi and Inter Miami are ‘screwed’ ahead of new MLS season

David Beckham’s Inter Miami are reportedly facing financial trouble.

A Major League Soccer executive has reportedly claimed that Inter Miami are ‘screwed’ ahead of the new season.

Inter Miami, co-owned by former Manchester United and England midfielder David Beckham, have been spending big in recent months to lure some of football’s biggest names to the club.

After managing to sign Lionel Messi from Paris Saint Germain, Inter Miami have since added the Argentine’s former teammates Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Luis Suarez to their ranks.

However, ahead of the new season, it has been reported that they are at risk of not complying with the MLS’s wage structure.

According to The Athletic, Inter Miami will have to come up with more allocation money or shed salary in order to adhere to the regulations.

It has been claimed that players like DeAndre Yedlin, Sergii Kryvstov, Gregore, Jean Mota and Robert Taylor are all available to be moved on.

In addition, it has been reported that the club are willing to terminate to contract of Coco Jean if a transfer cannot be agreed in time.

A high-ranking sporting executive at another club told The Athletic: “They are screwed. Trust me.”


Recently, Inter Miami made unwanted headlines during their pre-season tour in Hong Kong after fans were left furious by Messi’s absence.

The Argentine played no part in the club’s friendly match against a local XI due to injury but fans were not happy.

Messi said: “The truth is that it was bad luck that I couldn’t (play) on the day of the Hong Kong match.

“Unfortunately, in football, things can happen in any game, that we may have an injury. It’s a shame because I always want to participate, I want to be there, and even more so when it comes to these games when we travel so far and people are so excited to see our matches.”
