The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner and Argentine great Lionel Messi is expected to be unveiled at Inter Miami next week, according to a number of reports. Following the expiration of his PSG contract, the former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain star revealed last month that he would be joining the Major League Soccer team, Inter Miami.

The arrival of Messi to Inter Miami, a team that David Beckham co-owns, has been eagerly anticipated by the club's supporters. After three years of discussions, the team has finally been successful in signing Messi. In this transfer window, Messi will join former Barcelona teammates Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba in joining Inter Miami.

A presentation event called, "The Unveil" will be held by Inter Miami on July 16 at its home stadium, DRV PNK in Fort Lauderdale. Speeches on the pitch, spectacular entertainment, and more will be featured at the event. The trio of Messi, Busquets, and Alba are anticipated to receive their welcomes together at the ceremony, which will be live-streamed on the club's official website and social media handles.

In the new Leagues Cup, a competition between the top clubs from MLS and the Mexican league, Messi is anticipated to make his Inter Miami debut on July 21 against Mexican club Cruz Azul. Additionally, he will play in the regular MLS season, which runs through November.

Inter Miami is currently having a difficult season as they are currently last in the Eastern Conference after a nine-game losing streak, two draws, and seven losses.
