Without taking any names Inter Miami have announced “a major unveiling event” for Sunday earlier this week for Sunday at their home venue Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The club is also expected to introduce Spanish stars Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba to the team.

Apart from the World Cup and the Ballon d’Or’s, Messi played a huge role in helping his boyhood club Barcelona, where he spent 17 successful years, win 35 titles (4 Champions Leagues, 10 Spanish leagues and 7 Copa del Reys).
