One of the most exciting about Messi playing in the MLS is Tim Howard. The historic United States goalkeeper declared himself a fan of Argentina, and as Inter Miami appears to be interested, compared himself to Pele when talking about the idea of ​​having an ace in the local league.

“If he goes to Miami, the uproar will be the same as it was for Pele. Honestly, it would be crazy if that happened, ”he said.

Howard said he hoped Messi would make the MLS, just as other stars have traveled to the United States. Finally, he praised Argentina’s genre and talked about Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I mean, we’ve seen a lot of big international names coming to the United States. He (Lionel Messi)’s coming. Honestly, I’m telling you this, it’s not like we’ve seen. This guy, I swear to you, he’s a god. I played against him. He’s the best – he and I have Cristiano Ronaldo the best players of all time. They have the ball on a rope and you can not take it from them. “

Despite growing rumors about Messi’s future, Argentina will extend his contract with PSG until 2023, after which he will define his next steps.
