The arrival of Lionel Messi to Inter Miami CF has been a turning point in the history of the MLS and the club itself, but the Argentine star is not satisfied with what he has achieved so far. Messi, who has become the team’s general captain, continues to aspire to improve and strengthen the squad to achieve greater achievements.
Since his arrival at the Florida team, Messi has had an immediate impact on Inter Miami’s performance, along with the addition of his former FC Barcelona teammates, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba. However, despite the improvements, the team still faces defensive challenges and has struggled to win games. Messi is aware that the complete transformation of a team takes time and effort.
The surprise signing that Messi demanded from Inter Miami
The Argentine has big ambitions for Inter Miami and has expressed his desire to win the MLS and the CONCACAF Champions League. To achieve these objectives, Messi has requested quality reinforcements that will further strengthen the team.
A born winner, Messi has proven to be a source of inspiration for his teammates and a magnet for attracting other notable players to Inter Miami. The presence of the Argentine star in the team has made players like Busquets and Jordi Alba feel attracted to join the project.
Now, Messi has a particular player in mind to reinforce the team: Riqui Puig. The Catalan midfielder currently plays in the MLS with the Los Angeles Galaxy and his playing style would fit perfectly with Messi’s vision at Inter Miami. Messi looks for quality interiors who can connect effectively with him on the field, and Riqui Puig fits that profile.
Messi’s influence in building the team is becoming evident, and his request for Riqui Puig reflects his desire to take Inter Miami to new heights in American soccer. Inter Miami fans will be keen to follow developments surrounding potential signings and the team’s continued growth under Messi’s leadership.
