Lionel Messi lays out first Inter Miami target in private text to Sergio Aguero
Sergio Aguero has revealed what Lionel Messi sees as his first objective ahead of his blockbuster switch to MLS side Inter Miami.
The Argentinian icon's impending transfer to David Beckham's franchise stunned the football world, with the superstar set to play outside of Europe for the first time in his glittering career. Given the move is set to bring some unique commercial benefits for 35-year-old, it will undoubtedly be a lucrative venture for the superstar.
There is no doubt, however, that Messi will have a lot of work to do upon his arrival in Miami, with the Sunshine State club having gone through a tumultuous period on the pitch of late. It is easy to forget that coach Phil Neville was sacked in the same week that legendary forward's signing was announced.
With the Herons currently languishing rock bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference standings, it is clear that the current players are in a dire need of a morale boost. The job ahead of Messi was not lost on his close friend Aguero, however, who was quick to remind his compatriot of Inter Miami's recent woes.
