History has been made for Major League Soccer and it's a move that's going to be talked about for quite some time. Earlier this week, it was announced that Lionel Messi will join Inter Miami as soon as the MLS transfer window opens in early July.
This is a major win for MLS as a whole, as Messi continues to be one of the biggest stars on the planet. There had been talks about Messi potentially joining Barcelona for a reunion, but that won't happen. Instead, Messi is headed to Miami and tickets are already going fast to try and see him with his new club.

Angel Di Maria could follow Lionel Messi to Inter Miami
This Messi news has proven to be a huge stunner, as soccer fans across the planet can't believe it. David Beckham played a huge role in getting this done, but the recruitment isn't over for the Miami front office at all.
According to multiple reports, free agent Angel Di Maria could end up following Messi to the MLS as well. Inter Miami is interested in the Argentine legend, who played a big role, along with Messi, in helping the South American side win the World Cup this past fall.
Could you imagine both Di Maria and Messi suiting up for Inter Miami moving forward? This would easily make Inter one of the best sides in the MLS and surely boost the MLS Cup odds.
Messi alone has people jacked up about the team's future, as the club's official Instagram account has added millions of new followers ever since it was announced that they were signing Messi.
That's the Messi impact for you, folks. While we're still going to have to wait for about a month for Messi to officially join the club and don a uniform, people can't wait to see what he'll be able to do during this new chapter of his life.
On top of that, plenty of fans will have their eyes on Di Maria during the transfer window as well.
