Fans are all saying the same thing as Argentina World Cup icon Lionel Messi is set to join Inter Miami in shock transfer | The Sun

FANS are all saying the same thing as the news broke that Lionel Messi is set to join Inter Miami.

The shock move for the legend, who inspired Argentina to a World Cup win over Mexico last night, has been mooted for months.


The 35-year-old will be a free agent at the end of the season when his Paris Saint-Germain contract expires and a new report states Inter Miami are on the verge of getting Messi.

According to The Times, he is set to be made the highest paid player in MLS history by joining Beckham's franchise at the end of the current campaign.

SunSport reported earlier this month that Inter Miami had entered talks with Cristiano Ronaldo.

It would be a huge coup for the American team, and presents the prospect of the iconic rivals lining-up together finally, which has got people thinking.

One tweeted: "Time for the dream team Messi and Ronaldo at Inter Miami under the managerial genius of Phil Neville."

Another commented: "IMAGINE RONALDO AND MESSI AT INTER MIAMI SHEESH!"

If the move were to happen it would mean Miami boss Phil Neville would be managing Messi, a combination that has left footie fans beside themselves.

And that got even more people talking as one joked: "Messi is apparently set to join Inter Miami. You'd have to think he'll really progress as a player under Phil Neville."

Neville's management career has yet to really take off and he was often criticised when working as a pundit.

The former Manchester United player took over at Inter Miami in 2021.

It was only his second full-time job in football management after his three year stint as England Woman's boss.

He also briefly served as Salford City caretaker in 2015.

One person on Twitter said: "The thought of Phil Neville giving Lionel Messi tactical guidance is too perfect for words."

While another added: "The very prospect of Lionel Messi playing under Phil Neville will never not be hilarious."

One tweeter even went as far to say that "it will be a crime against football if Messi is managed by Phil Neville."

Messi meanwhile is arguably the greatest and most decorated player of all time and continues to impress at PSG at the age of 35.

Fans could not quite work out how this manager and player dynamic could be on the brink of happening.

One said on Twitter: "Phil Neville managing Lionel Messi, the greatest player of all time, is some mad alternative timeline stuff

While another baffled observer said: "We're in a world where Lionel Messi could be managed by Phil Neville."

While another went even further and cast their eyes over many surprisingly developments in football this season.

They wrote: "Imagine being cryogenically frozen in 2013 then waking up 10 years later to Arsenal as Premier League champions, Newcastle in the Champions League and Lionel Messi being managed by Phil Neville."

Messi, for now, is focused on finally ending his World Cup hoodoo out in Qatar.

He and Argentina face Poland on Wednesday looking to try and seal a spot in the knockouts.
