Recently, Beckham has spent time returning to PSG – the old team with which he had 14 caps at the end of his illustrious career. The handsome former midfielder met with coach Christophe Galtier’s all-star squad, then took souvenir photos with stars like Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Sergio Ramos or Marco Verratti – the only player left at PSG when Beckham plays football at the club.
However, just before taking a picture with Verratti, Beckham experienced a dilemma involving Messi. Specifically, the Argentine superstar reached out his hand as if to shake Beckham’s hand but failed. “I love the way Beckham ignores Messi’s handshake,” one fan wrote. However, another fan countered: “Your eyes must have problems to see that it is a handshake from Messi. He is just pointing at the camera to take pictures.”
Shortly after, in another video, Beckham said to Messi “Congratulations” and the two hugged each other intimately. For months, there have been many reports that the 47-year-old former midfielder wants to invite Messi to join his Inter Miami club to play. Beckham is said to be ready to pay Messi the highest salary of the American Professional League (MLS), if the owner of 7 Golden Balls nods.
Currently, Messi only has a contract with PSG until the end of this season and is likely to leave the club on a free basis. Barcelona could be the next stop in the rest of the 35-year-old superstar’s career, as he always cherishes the desire to return to his old team.
