Don Garber, the American League Commissioner, has said there are attempts to bring Argentine legend Lionel Messi, the French player for Paris Saint-Germain, to the American League.
Yesterday, Friday, The Athletic released statements from Don Garber confirming that Messi’s move to the United States of America will be very similar to what happened to Englishman David Beckham.
Major League Soccer commissioner: Willing to think outside the box to get Messi
Garber said during his interview with The Athletic: “You’re dealing with a player who is arguably the most secretive player in the history of the game, so when there are rumors about his connections with Inter Miami, it’s great and it can happen. “
And he continued: “This move will be great for the American League, Messi and his family. We are trying to use every opportunity. I cannot give more details.”
He emphasized that Inter Miami and the American League are ready to make many concessions to complete the deal, and when asked about the salary, Messi replied: “Teams have enough flexibility to do unique things. The American League is a single entity, so there is a state willingness to cooperate to take a step outside the box.”
He added: “After Ronaldo wins with such a huge salary, the transfer market will explode in an unimaginable way, so we will have to make a similar deal with Messi that will compensate him for what he and his family expect.”
