Lionel Messi announced that he will leave PSG and Ligue 1 for an immediate move to David Beckham’s Inter Miami. He shocked the world by rejecting his one true love, Barcelona, avoiding all the new drama that could appear, in a club with many financial issues. The World Cup winner decided that a transfer to the other side of the Atlantic Ocean is what he and his family truly needed at this point.
Despite all the stardom arriving in Florida, Inter Miami is currently sitting in the last place of the Eastern Conference, being on a six-game losing streak. The performances continue to be very poor but Messi’s announcement shook the betting world regarding the team’s odds to win the 2023 MLS Cup.
The odds reached even the margin of 200/1 at some point this season, dropped to 60/1 just a couple of weeks ago, but now the shift is significant, as the odds are now down to 201/10, as the bookmakers moved Inter Miami 9th in the favourites’ list.
The team still needs a lot of improvement as we still don’t know the potential timeline of Messi’s MLS debut (it could become a reality in the next month). All this buzzing though attracted interest from the international press, while Inter Miami is heavily linked with some other huge football names such as Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Angel Di Maria.
The major goal for Javier Morales’ players is to reach the 9th spot of the Eastern Conference, which guarantees a play-off participation in the last-16 round of the major tournament. Lionel Messi could help towards this direction.
