Seattle Sounders star Nicolás Lodeiro has sent a warning to Lionel Messi that everyone will look to beat him in every match when he finally plays for Inter Miami.

Inter Miami have sealed the signing of Messi on a free transfer this summer, beating Barcelona and Al-Hilal to the signature despite the €500 million world-record offer from the Saudi Arabian side.

Lodeiro divulged that he is waiting for his chance to play against the Argentine superstar and football icon, who according to him, is the greatest footballer ever.

Speaking to ESPN, Lodeiro claimed that he was happy to welcome the best player in the world to MLS. 

“I am happy that the best player in the world and of all time is coming. That we have it here in the league… We’re all going to want to enjoy it. Obviously, if we play against him we will want to win, there is no doubt about that.

“But after all that Messi generates, the possibility of having the best player in the world with us is going to be very nice. Hopefully, that can come true.”
