Lionel Messi has joined American side Inter Miami during the summer transfer window, despite Barcelona trying to bring him back to the Camp Nou.

However, the financial problems of the Catalan giant mean that Lionel Messi cannot return to Camp Nou.

The Argentine star has a dream to greet the Barcelona fans and now he has received a promise that this dream will come true.

The president of Inter Miami, Jorge Mas, has said that he, together with his colleagues, will do everything possible to arrange a friendly with Barcelona to end Messi’s career.

“Messi did not like leaving Barcelona, he could not say goodbye to his club, which welcomed him as a child, the circumstances were not what Leo wanted”, said Mas in an interview for the magazine ‘El Club del Deportista’ .

“I will do everything possible to give him the opportunity to say goodbye to his fans in Barcelona. “Inter Miami will go to Barcelona or we will play somewhere else,” declared Mas.

The president of Inter Miami has said that they tried to transfer Messi in 2019 as well, but they were unable to do so due to economic conditions.

“I always wanted to take Leo. Everyone told me I was crazy to think he would come to Inter Miami with his wife and kids. In 2019, in a meeting with his father and David Beckham, we explained the project to him for three hours. I told him: “Your son will have the opportunity to create a new legacy because he will be able to change a sport in a country.”

“From then on, it took four and a half years to convince Lionel to decide to come with his family. I never lost faith, I saw that after the World Cup there was a great opportunity and in January or February, I could close something”, declared Jorge Mas.
