Messi rejects €1 billion to join Beckham’s Inter Miami

Messi rejects €1 billion to join Beckham's Inter Miami
Jun 8 2023 Share

Football legend Lionel Messi has decided that his next team after PSG will be David Beckham’s club Inter Miami.

Apparently, the €1 billion on offer by Saudi Arabian teams was not enough to sway the Argentinian from joining this team, having just been offered a unique contract by America’s Major League Soccer. 

It was reported that Inter Miami offered Messi $54 million per year for four years, along with complex sponsorship deals with brands such as Apple and Adidas. 

It has been reported that MLS and Apple have discussed giving Messi a share of the revenue from the MLS Season Pass TV subscription. 

Meanwhile, Adidas has also offered the player a profit-sharing deal that will give the star a cut of any jump in profits from the MLS. 

“I made the decision that I am going to go to Miami,” Messi said. “I still haven’t closed it 100%. I’m missing some things, but we decided to continue on the path.” 

And looking at those deals, would you blame him? The PSG contract ends by June’s closing, meaning that we could see the player play with the US team by 21st July when they host Mexican side Cruz Azul in their Leagues Cup opener in Fort Lauderdale.

TAG SOMEONE YOU SUSPECT COULD BE MALTA’S SPIDER-MAN.

Who would be Malta’s very own Peter Parker? 

We are now forced to ponder the question after local creator malta.ai re-imagined the Marvel swinging superhero making his way around the cities of the Mediterranean island. 

The young superhero, a favourite amongst both comic book lovers and those less attuned to the geekier world, could be seen in various localities and iconic spots of Malta.

Just picture it: you’re walking through the streets of Valletta and Spider-man just zooms over your head as he makes his way to fight crime. 

And as per our introductory question, Spider-man is a young teenager in disguise, so he’d have to come from one of Malta’s various secondary or post-secondary schools.
