What Prompted Messi To Join Inter Miami –Seedorf

What Prompted Messi To Join Inter Miami –Seedorf

Former Real Madrid Clarence Seedorf has revealed that Lionel Messi’s desire to move his family closer to home prompted his decision to join Inter Miami in the MLS. 

Seedorf said that it was a logical decision for Messi to move to the USA, adding that the Argentina World Cup winner is tired of adapting to new places.

Messi recently played his final game for Paris Saint-Germain in a 3-2 defeat against Clermont Foot.

The 35-year-old, who had been linked with a move to Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal and also a return to Barcelona, will leave PSG as a free agent when his contract expires at the end of this month.

“I didn’t know [signing for Inter Miami was an option for Lionel Messi]. But now that I know, I think it is a very logical decision,” Seedorf told Stadium Astro.

“Messi is a bit tired of adapting to new places. He knows Miami very well. He is close to South America. The World Cup is coming to the [United] States and North America. He can speak his language. His family can speak the language and be closer to home.

“It’s been a long, long journey for him and his family to be away from home. So, I can understand this fully. People ask about the money, I think he will make the same money anywhere he goes. I’m happy for him and wish him all the best,” he added.
