The announcement that Lionel Messi has joined Inter Miami for the current MLS season has gone absolutely crazy. David Beckham's side have hit the table hard and many will now turn to North American territory to see their idol.

FC Barcelona will be hoping that Messi can be part of their team. Despite the talks that Joan Laporta and Jorge Messi, father of the Argentinean star, had with Jorge Messi, they could not give the necessary conditions for him to arrive freely and without any ties.

But the story is now told by two brothers who are the architects of Messi's arrival in the state of Florida. Jorge and Jose Más are the Cuban-born businessmen who are the majority partners in the CONCACAF team, and they have more plans to make an immediate impact.

Owners of the infrastructure company MasTec, they also have ties to football in Spain as Jorge is the president of the Real Zaragoza club, so they are no novices in the field of managing and signing players in professional football. And that will help them to add more interesting players.

How did they manage to bring Messi to the United States?

The Mas brothers acquired the shares of Marcelo Claure and Masayoshi Son to become the majority owners, leaving only David Beckham with a 10 percent stake and the visible face of the club. They will soon have more top players and are looking to reign as Paris Saint-Germain or Manchester City have done.
