Taking the opportunity of Lionel Messi to be free to leave Barcelona in the summer of 2020, David Beckham wants the Argentine superstar to wear the club he owns in MLS.
According to The Sun, Club Beckham, owner of Inter Miami, will join the American Professional League (MLS) from March 2020. At this time, the former MU midfielder actively completed the team with the goal of recruiting a few famous stars from Europe. Messi is the preferred plan by Beckham.
Messi also has a contract until June 2021 with Barcelona, but there is a special provision that allows him to leave at the end of the 2019/20 season. This is an opportunity for Beckham to possess the brightest talents in a free transfer. The Sun News insists Beckham will try to persuade Messi with a huge salary.
President Josep Maria Bartomeu admitted Barca could lose Messi in the summer of 2020. The problem is only the 32-year-old striker wants to continue to contribute to the Camp Nou. Mr. Bartomeu is confident Messi will stay at Barca, because he is at the peak of his form and love for the Camp Nou.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barca plans to extend a lifetime contract with Messi, and the negotiations will begin next month. After nearly 20 years with Barca, Messi has become the greatest player in the club and the La Liga.
Messi has played a total of 719 matches for Barca and scored 614 goals. In La Liga, Messi is the number one striker with 603 goals.
Previously, Beckham repeatedly expressed ambition to recruit Messi or Ronaldo. “Looking at the way Messi and Ronaldo play aggressively, I don’t know when their career ends. These 2 stars still play at the highest level and have the ability to stick with the current team for a long time. However, anything can happen in football, ”Beckham said.
