BREAKING: Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami Adds Son of Real Madrid Icon to Squad

Published

on

Lionel Messi is set to team up with the offspring of a Real Madrid legend at Inter Miami as the 2024 MLS season draws near. Messi and his Inter Miami colleagues are in the midst of preparations for the upcoming campaign, marking Messi’s inaugural full season with the team. The recipient of eight Ballon d’Or awards, Messi joined the newly-formed soccer franchise last summer amid an ongoing MLS season.

Despite Messi’s impactful debut in American soccer, where he propelled Miami to victory in the Leagues Cup, the 36-year-old couldn’t secure a playoff berth for his team. To bolster Miami’s MLS title aspirations, Messi’s close friend and former Barcelona teammate, Luis Suarez, was recently enlisted.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, Inter Miami has finalized the signing of Federico Redondo from Argentinos Juniors. The 21-year-old defensive midfielder’s acquisition comes at a cost of €8 million (£6.8m), including a 15 per cent sell-on clause, following a verbal agreement with the Argentine club last week.

This move marks Messi’s collaboration with the son of Fernando Redondo, a revered figure in the annals of Real Madrid history. Fernando, now 54, enjoyed a six-season tenure at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu from 1994 to 2000, amassing 228 appearances and clinching two La Liga titles and two Champions League trophies. Federico’s journey mirrors that of his father, as he returned to Argentina at a young age to follow in his footsteps, joining the youth setup at Argentinos Juniors.
