Miami, Florida. It’s a city synonymous with palm trees, white sandy beaches – and now, Lionel Messi. Inter Miami made one of the statement signings of the summer to bring one of the greatest footballers in history to Major League Soccer, and south Florida has been consumed by Messi Mania.

Arriving in Miami, it won’t be long until you see someone wearing the club’s trademark pink shirt with the Argentine great’s name on the back. You’d be lucky to find one anywhere to buy, though – demand was simply that high at the time of his full debut in July. Even at the specially dedicated pop-up Adidas Messi store on Lincoln Road, they had only men’s 3XL left in stock, such is the appeal since the World Cup winner made the move Stateside.
