In a city where beach parties and luxuries are part of the normality, the possible arrival of Lionel Messi to Inter Miami began to generate a special revolution. Despite Barcelona's desire to repatriate him and the seduction operation they armed in Saudi Arabia, everything indicates that the 10 will play in the MLS from next week. And as happened with Barsa, PSG and 10 of the Argentine National Team, if Leo's pass materializes his new shirt will be all the rage.
How much is the Inter Miami jersey worth? For now, in the official Adidas store in Argentina, the only models that appear, from 2021, are sold out. The holder, salmon-colored, is $ 7,999 while the alternate, white, costs $ 6,799. However, both prices are not updated compared to the shirts of other European football teams marketed by the German brand.
When entering the MLS Store, more options and updated models appear, although the values are considerably higher. The current pink sweater and black details (released last year) costs $ 80 (excluding taxes), while the replica with a name and number of your choice can be obtained at $ 120. In turn, the black kit of 2021 that is also on sale on the website has similar prices.
Inter Miami's proposal to Messi
Messi is offered two years of contract and more benefits, such as club shares in a low proportion. And we must bear in mind that in the United States many businesses with top brands are opened. But with the Copa America on top and then the 2026 World Cup. Although it was not the idea to go to the United States – at first he thought of playing one more year in PSG and then the Barcelona option was latent – the integral proposal and the lifestyle convinces, already at this point in his career, with his children of school age and a certain tranquility in an area like Miami, where they have all gone on vacation together.

Barcelona can't, as much as Messi wants to...
Jorge Messi's meeting with Joan Laporta on Monday couldn't change the picture much regarding Barcelona's possibility. While the image of Leo's father entering Laporta's house is strong, the talk did not yield great news. It was a meeting that lasted 20 minutes and in which there was a sincerity of both parties: on the side of the player they said that Leo would like to return to Barcelona, on the side of the club they assured that they would be delighted ... After that protocol and hopeful beginning, the state of the situation was discussed and that is when the two parties stopped looking at the chance with optimism.

Leo Messi doesn't want a novel to be made. Let his image wear down again, fall into media conflicts. The Flea would love to have a Last Dance at the Barsa, but that is not as simple as some say. The situation does not depend on the Rosario, it depends on the club being enabled and that for now does not happen. And that lack of guarantees, which Barcelona accepts from the Messi, is what today slows the illusion of the Blaugrana fans.
