Much speculation has surrounded the 35-year-old's next move over the past few weeks, with Messi being heavily linked withmoves to both Saudi Arabia and Barcelona.

But he has finally settled on his decision, turning down a fairytale return to his boyhood club Barcelona and a huge $2.5billion deal from Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal, to make the move to Miami.

And his decision has been enthusiastically welcomed by the fans down in South Beach.
