Inter Miami Wins Premier League With FC Barcelona Idol Messi: Aguero

MLS club Inter Miami is capable of winning the Premier League by boasting FC Barcelona idol and ‘GOAT’ Lionel Messi according to a close friend of the Argentine in Sergio Aguero, who made this outlandish claim to Stake.

The David Beckham and Jorge Mas-owned franchise has experienced a dramatic reversal in fortunes since Messi turned down the opportunity to re-join Barca last summer and instead headed across the Atlantic when nearing free agency at Paris Saint-Germain.

Messi landed a trophyless outfit its first silverware, and in the 2024 season, Inter Miami currently leads the MLS’ Eastern Conference with 20 games already completed.

The eight-time Ballon d’Or king’s impact is clear for all to see, and for Aguero, who is one of Messi’s closest friends and lifted what is considered to be the most difficult domestic championship five times at Manchester City, the number 10 could also help Miami rule England.

“I think they would win the league. They have Messi that is the GOAT, and with him, even winning the Premier is possible,” Aguero stated.

Messi is currently being joined in the United States by now-retired Aguero and the Argentina squad, as it kicks off the defense of its 2021 Copa America title against Canada in Atlanta on Thursday.

La Albiceleste’s final Group A match against Peru will be played in Miami, however, where Aguero expects Lionel Scaloni’s men to encounter a “big expat community” of Argentinians and “many other Latin Americans who support our side”.

The 2024 decider takes place in the Floridian city as well, and if Messi can captain his side in going all the way once more as it did in Rio three years ago, Aguero believes Argentina’s current squad “can cement their legacy as one of the greatest teams of all time”.

This being said, Aguero noted that while the joint-record winner with Uruguay on 15 Copa America crowns is “always a candidate” to come out on top, he doesn’t believe pressure will get in the way of achieving Argentina’s goals.

“I don’t think so. I think we’re used to this. Now, it’s about preserving the style and the team concept we’ve developed. We won what we’ve won because of this,” Aguero said.

“The players that were part of that process should pass it on to the newcomers. It’s great that it happens naturally. The national squad is richer for all the new talent, and they’ll keep growing because of this,” he predicted.
