Messi recently revealed that he is leaving Paris Saint-Germain to sign as a free agent with Major League Soccer (MLS) team Inter Miami after winning back-to-back French Ligue 1 championships with the Parisians.

As the former Barcelona captain was named player of the tournament in Qatar last December, his season also included Argentina’s World Cup victory.
