What to Expect from Messi’s Arrival to Inter Miami
July 5 marks the day when the summer transfer market opens in the United States. It is expected that Messi’s official incorporation to the Inter Miami squad won’t happen until then. Nevertheless, his debut could come earlier than that, on July 21 against Cruz Azul in the Leagues Cup.
Shocking the Soccer World with an Official Agreement
The official announcement of the agreement between Messi and Inter Miami on Wednesday shook the soccer world. In the USA, expectations are at an all-time high.

The price of tickets to see the ‘Flea’ play has gone up, with a clash with Cruz Azul not having any tickets for less than $500.
The Arrival of a Game-Changer to American Soccer
Inter Miami is bringing a player capable of changing the course of American soccer, but the team coached by Javier Morales is yet to find its footing. It lost 1-3 this Saturday at the field of the New England Revolution, with a goal and two assists from the Spanish player Carlos Gil, and has accumulated six consecutive defeats.
Current State of Inter Miami
Inter Miami has been performing poorly so far, with only fifteen points in 17 days. It is currently the bottom team in the East and is seven units away from the ‘playoffs’ positions.

Inter Miami’s Prospects for the Season
Although currently struggling, Inter Miami is a US Open Cup semifinalist, giving it a chance to win a trophy this season. All eyes are on the arrival of Messi to see if he can help take the team to new heights. But for now, the team will have to continue to work hard and fight for every victory.
