Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar asserted that he was aware that Lionel Messi would be joining Inter Miami this summer.
Neymar claims he and Messi discussed his upcoming move to Inter Miami, and that he assured the Argentina captain that he would be content playing for the MLS team.
As a free agent, Messi recently declared his intention to sign with Inter Miami.
Messi and Neymar were reunited in the summer of 2021 when the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner signed a contract with PSG after Barcelona was unable to renew it owing to La Liga’s wage restriction regulations.
Speaking about Messi’s Inter Miami move, Neymar said (via Albiceleste Talk Twitter):
“Messi to Miami? I knew that. Messi is one of my best friends and a gift the ball gave me. I had the chance to play with him, and then we became friends.
“I knew he would come to Miami, and we talked about it. I told him he would be very happy because of the city and the way of life, and I’m sure he will change the whole league.”
