Beckham Makes Contact With Messi Over Sensational Switch?

Ahead of the launch of his club in the MLS, owner David Beckham has reportedly contacted FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi about a sensational transfer after it was revealed the Argentine can leave the Catalan club whenever he wants.

Reports: Messi Considering Shock Barca Exit

Many were surprised recently when it came out that the 32-year-old has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave the Blaugrana at the end of every season.

A follow-up report from Mundo Deportivo claimed that Messi is actually toying with the idea of moving on at the end of the 2019/20 season, despite the player often insisting he is happy in the city of Barcelona.

It was said that he is considering a switch to the MLS, which ties into the latest from Catalunya Radio, that Inter Miami owner Beckham has reached out to Messi.

However, it has also been stated that while the Argentine does find the prospect of playing in the US interesting, the new club would simply not be able to afford his services.

Having addressed his future many times in the past, Messi has always maintained that if he were to leave Barca, it would most likely be for a move back home to Argentina.
