Inter Miami are closing in on a move for Lionel Messi which will make him the highest-paid player in the history of the sport in the US.
The MLS side believes the Argentina legend will make a switch from Paris-Saint Germain ahead of next season.
Messi, 35, is currently understood to be on a salary of around £1.2m-a-week and would take a pay cut at the Florida franchise, which is co-owned by David Beckham.
According to Mail Online, the club are already thought to be identifying players who will fit with the forward’s style of play with former Barcelona team-mates Luis Suarez and Cesc Fabregas under consideration.
Inter Miami are managed by Beckham’s former Manchester United team-mate Phil Neville, who has just signed a contract extension.
