David Beckham is plotting to have Lionel Messi sign for his Major League Soccer franchise Inter Miami in 2023.
Messi left Barcelona this summer to join Paris Saint Germain where he signed a two-year deal but according to reports from the Daily Mirror, Beckham wants the player in the United States once his current deal with the French giants expires.
Messi was originally linked with a move to the US following his contract expiry with Barcelona this summer but the deal didn't materialize as the player felt he still had a lot to offer in Europe.
The reports indicate that the Inter Miami board is confident of putting together a package to sign Messi as they aim to challenge the established sides in the MLS.
