Why did Messi choose the US over Saudi Arabia

Lionel Messi’s decision to sign with David Beckham’s Inter Miami team in the US, sealing the largest MLS deal ever, shocked the football world.

Several well-known football players Karim Benzema and Neymar secured deals with Saudi clubs after leaving French Ligue 1 team Paris Saint-Germain.

At the time, it was anticipated that Messi, the current Ballon d’Or winner, would also travel to Saudi Arabia to join the players.

The writer disclosed, “Messi planned Inter Miami move long before Saudi Arabia interest,” in an interview with the ARLS podcast.

Romano stated: “I think it was not financial, I think it was for family reasons and also because it was close to David Beckham, and he had the chance to build a squad with some players who are his friends, like Busquets and Alba.”

Romano continued, “He could have made something different in Saudi Arabia, but he had the chance to build what he wanted there. He planned his move to Inter Miami a long time ago for a variety of reasons. Although it was a possibility, I wouldn’t say the move was close; from what I’ve heard, it was never that close.”

According to Inter Miami News, Messi made the right decision because the US league has seen a rise in popularity that is more than that of the Saudi Pro League.

Early in 2023, Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Al Nassr, a Saudi professional team, where he was establishing himself and the league.
