Lionel Messi has announced that he will join Inter Miami in the MLS through simultaneously published interviews

Iran PressEurope: Lionel Messi has confirmed that he will be moving to MLS side Inter Miami FC.

In a statement with Mundo Deportivo he said 'I'm not going back to Barça, I'm going to Inter Miami.' 

'I made the decision that I'm going to go to Miami. I still haven't closed it one hundred percent. I'm missing some things but we decided to continue on the path. If the Barcelona thing didn't come out, I wanted to leave Europe, get out of the spotlight and think more in my family,' says Messi 

Messi, who will be 36 at the end of this month, had all-but ruled out a move to the US after his family set their heart on a return to Barcelona, but that became impossible because of the club's financial situation - and the player has decided to take the Miami offer over the astronomical sums proposed by Al-Hilal. 219
