Only three months remain until Lionel Messi becomes a free agent at the end of his contract at Paris Saint-Germain, and the question of his future still continues to stir world football.
Along with the reports about a possible stay in the city of lights or an exciting closing of a circle in Barcelona, even in the United States eyes are shining on the world champion with the Argentina team.
The MLS teams cannot afford the star's salary, but to convince him to sign in the United States they decided to cooperate in a particularly original way.
According to the move reported in the Catalan "Sport", all league teams will participate in the salary of the player who chooses where to sign.
The preferred destinations are one of the teams from New York or Los Angeles or Inter Miami owned by David Beckham.
The cooperation between the teams stems from the fact that they believe that Messi's arrival in the league will bring profits from sources such as broadcast rights for all of them, and not just for the team that the Argentinian will choose.
The original move of the Americans
In recent weeks, it has been reported that Messi and PSG are discussing the possibility of continuing the engagement beyond the current season, however, the boos he has received recently from the team's fans may tip the scales and lead to his departure.
Messi shows good personal ability this season, compared to the first year in Paris, with 18 goals and 17 goals in all competitions.
However, the fact that the team was eliminated for the second time in a row in the round of 16 of the Champions League made this season also a failure for the Qatari project.
