Jose Mas, an owner at the club,  said, "I think, and David has a relationship with him, if he does leave PSG, at the time he leaves it, we’d love to see Lionel Messi be a player at Inter Miami and be part of our community."

"Can it happen? Look, we’ll push. I’m an optimist at heart. Could I see that happening? It’s a possibility," the Sun quoted him saying. Messi, for the record, had earlier said that he wishes to compete in the MLS someday. Messi is not having a good campaign as per his standards and this can possibly lead him to head to the USA, provided a good offer is put on the table from Inter Miami.PSG had signed Messi last summer on a two-year deal with an option of extending it by another year.

Despite not having scored many goals, Messi has been constantly rising up the assists' chart. He currently has eight assists to his name in Ligue 1. As a matter of fact, he has now provided assists in five straight matches.
