Lionel Messi wanted at Inter Miami
Jorge, who co-owns Inter Miami revealed the prospect of Messi making a switch to the States to link up with them is a 'possibility.'
Jorge suggested the club will be banking on Messi's "relationship" with Beckham to make the transfer happen.
"Can it happen? Look, we’ll push. I’m an optimist at heart. Could I see that happening? It’s a possibility," he said.
Lionel Messi's PSG deal
The Barcelona icon joined PSG in the summer, ending a more than 20-year relationship with the Catalan giants.
Messi is understood to have joined the French side on a two-year deal but could force an early exit after an underwhelming first season so far in the French capital.
Messi's desire to play in the MLS
Incidentally, Messi has not hidden his desire to play in the States, revealing back in 2020 it would be a 'dream' to one day play in the MLS.
"I've always had the dream of playing in another league, in the United States," the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner said.
"Maybe it will happen, doesn't have to be right away," he added.
Ronaldo told to retire
Earlier, Sports Brief reported former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf believes Cristiano Ronaldo should consider calling time on his football career.
This is after the five-time Ballon d'Or enduring a frustrating run of form that has seen him score just once since the turn of the year.
According to Leboeuf, he would rather have Ronaldo retire at the top than watch the Man United icon with 'pity.'
