With a summer transfer to Beckham's Miami, Lionel Messi is expected to sign the biggest MLS contract ever.

According to a shocking rumor in The Sunday Times, Lionel Messi is close to signing with Inter Miami next summer, when he will set a new record for player wealth

in Major League Soccer.The 35-year-old Messi, who is still competing at a high level for Paris Saint-Germain and Argentina, is widely regarded as the greatest player of his

generation. After his contract with PSG expires this summer, he is expected to consider a number of options, including a return to Barcelona.

Whether defiant of the tired "retirement league" criticism or those who believe the league still requires big stars to be relevant, this is the rare move that will 

cause everyone with an MLS opinion to nod in agreement.Messi has nearly 400 total assists between his club and nation, is approaching his 700th goal between Barca and PSG,

and has scored 93 more goals for Argentina. Despite having won seven Ballons d'Or, he continues to be in the top 99 percentile for net anticipated goals and assists, 

shot-creating actions, passes attempted, and progressive passes. Messi will be closer to Argentina and a closer event for South American and North

American fans, but he would face some criticism from the fanatical Cristiano Ronaldo and/or Real Madrid audience and possibly from those wishing he would one day return to

Newell's Old Boys. It is sufficient to state that Messi will compete for every 

league honor à la Zlatan Ibrahimovic if Pozuelo and Carlos Vela can influence a team the way they have in their 30s.
