What Lionel Messi has caused on his arrival in the United States continues to have world-class consequences. The Argentine star has signed for Inter Miami and his social media accounts have already quadrupled their number of followers, and tickets to see him are already being resold.

Although the actual contract has not yet been signed, the verbal agreement has been made and the South American is already packing his bags from Paris to arrive in the state of Florida, where one of the most extraordinary supporters' groups in history awaits him, as it existed when the club was not even founded.

Lionel Messi's first matches are likely to be in a new tournament starting this year in CONCACAF. The Leagues Cup will put all the clubs in Mexico and the United States in competition with each other to see who is the best in the area and considered the greatest.

But a move from his homeland would put him playing for the one trophy he doesn't have. All his life, Messi has played in Europe and always had to play in the UEFA Champions League or other tournaments on the continent. But there may be a chance that the world champion could play in one of the oldest competitions in the world.

How could Messi play Copa Libertadores?

The relationship between CONCACAF and CONMEBOL could be re-established thanks to the signing of Lionel Messi. There has been speculation on social media that the arrival of the Argentina captain in North America would force the South American confederation to invite American and Mexican teams to the Copa Libertadores. This with the support of all the countries involved without thinking about it.
