The MLS have been handed a boost in pursuit of Lionel Messi after the Argentine sensation reportedly rejected PSG’s latest contract offer.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner looks set to leave Ligue 1 at the end of the season unless he fails to agree to a new deal with the French champions.
However, despite being offered a new deal, Messi, according to ESPN, is unwilling to accept what would be a 25 percent pay reduction – and failure to meet the South American’s demands will see PSG miss out on securing his long-term future.
Although rumored to be wanted back by former club Barcelona, according to recent reports, America is also a possible destination for arguably the sport’s greatest-ever player. David Beckham’s Inter Miami have been continually linked.
