Inter Miami’s Valuation and Lionel Messi’s Impact on the Club

Inter Miami, the Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise co-owned by soccer legend David Beckham, made headlines when they secured the services of the legendary Lionel Messi. Despite the marquee signing, Inter Miami is yet to reach the pinnacle of MLS club valuations.

According to reports from the Spanish outlet Marca, Inter Miami is currently ranked 11th in the MLS with a valuation of $600 million. They trail behind Charlotte, the 10th-placed club, valued at $625 million, and are still some distance away from ninth-placed DC United, valued at $700 million.

Founded in January 2018 as the 25th MLS franchise, Inter Miami started competing in the league in 2020. While their on-field performance has improved each year, they’ve also made significant strides in their coaching staff. From Diego Alonso to Phil Neville, and now with former Barcelona coach Tata Martino at the helm, the club is steadily growing.

Lionel Messi’s addition to the squad has undeniably given Inter Miami a massive boost. The Argentine superstar has scored 11 goals and provided five assists in just 13 appearances across competitions. His presence has not only elevated the club’s profile but also brought a newfound sense of excitement to Miami’s soccer scene.

Despite being out of playoff contention this season, Inter Miami’s future looks promising, and they will aim to perform even better next year.

On a separate but fascinating note, Messi holds a unique record as the youngest and oldest player to score in the FIFA World Cup. From his early days with Argentina in 2006 to his recent triumph in 2022, Messi’s impact on the world’s biggest stage continues to captivate football fans worldwide. Whether he will participate in the 2026 World Cup remains a topic of speculation.
