Lionel Messi Potentially Being Managed by Phil Neville at Inter Milan Leaves Twitter in Stitches. Lionel Messi’s potential move to Inter Miami in Major League Soccer is taking social media by storm.
David Beckham’s MLS side are confident that they will land the Argentinian superstar in the coming months.
As noted by Marca, Inter Miami’s interest in the player isn’t new. The MLS franchise was keen on the player when he was still a Barcelona star. Now, however, they are more confident of making it a reality.
While hopes are high in America that Messi will sign on the dotted line, fans on social media aren’t as excited about the idea. Many feel that the Argentinian legend will tarnish his name by moving to America.
Some have even picked on the fact that if he does move, he will be coached by former Manchester United player Phil Neville.
