Sergio Aguero claims Lionel Messi’s exit from Inter Miami is only a ‘matter of time’

Aguero believes Messi will leave Inter Miami after only 5 months.

The world was stunned when Argentine football icon Lionel Messi opted to join David Beckham’s Inter Miami. Messi joined the Florida-based team on a free transfer in July 2023 and has played only six matches for the club. Despite Beckham’s plans to seek Messi’s assistance in promoting football in the United States, Sergio Aguero believes Messi will go soon.

Aguero told Diario AS, a Spanish sports publication, that he would like to return to his first European club, FC Barcelona. The former Manchester City, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid striker stated that his close buddy adores and identifies with the club and city.

He did, however, add that the two did not discuss his homecoming in-depth, but Aguero feels it is only a matter of time until he returns. He added, “Sometimes I just think it’s a matter of time…Leo always said that he loves Barcelona. He is very identified with the club and city.”

David Beckham had a key role in luring Lionel Messi to Inter Miami. In an interview with The New York Times, he disclosed that it took him three years to complete. He also stated that the agreement would not be viable without Apple. He signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Beckham’s team and is reportedly earning $50-$60 million each year.

Despite gaining Messi’s services as a player, Beckham wants Messi to remain involved with the club once he retires. The former Los Angeles Galaxy great feels Messi’s signing will make the MLS an even more appealing destination for football talents. The Argentine’s deal guarantees him a share in the club whenever he retires from the sport.
