Those who bet on soccer are seeing a massive transfer of talent in the sport. Previously, transfers from popular players tend to stay within a sports league. But with more and more countries gaining more support and popularity with their local soccer leagues, players are now crossing continents to play soccer. And when a US MLS Club hires Lionel Messi, you know some thing is up. This begs the question: Is Inter Miami building a super team?
Lionel Messi does not make a team. We all know that. But wherever he goes, fans and wagers follow. Ticket prices in Inter Miami matches are already rising. Your sportsbook PPH operation is likely getting more action in MLS betting, too. And Inter Miami is investing not just with Messi, if the rumors are true.
Is Inter Miami Building a Super Team?
Aside from Messi, the Herons can make 5 more hires, as well as get a new coach, since Phil Neville and the team have parted ways. This gives the team, who are currently in the bottom of the league rankings, the chance to revamp the roster with a fresh lineup. Inter Miami is 8 points off a playoff spot, so we don’t know if they can still make it this season.
It will be tricky to see the odds of the team in your bookie pay per head sportsbook. They are the lowest-ranked team, but they will be gaining higher caliber players. Jordi Alba is set to join the team. Fellow Barcelona players joining together may inspire other players to jump ship and move to the MLS. Sergio Busquets, another former Barca player is joining the club, after declining offers to play for Saudi FCs.
Jesse Lingard is another name who has an expired contract, with the Nottingham Forest, and has been seen training with Inter Miami. Lingard has ample Premier League experience when he was with Manchester United, so the team can definitely use Lingard. Tata Martino is the new manager for Inter Miami, and the coach position is still up for grabs.
