Phil Neville tips Messi to be the ‘biggest signing in history’ if he joins MLS

Inter Miami boss Phil Neville thinks that Messi’s transfer to MLS will be the biggest transfer in history

With Inter Miami interested in signing

Lionel Messi

, club head coach Phile Neville has welcomed such a move, calling it “the biggest signing in history”.

"I think this would be probably the biggest signing in history,"

he told the Athletic.

"I can't think of another star of that magnitude to come from a major footballing country to this place. This is maybe similar [to Beckham's arrival], but maybe even bigger.

"I think you're talking about one of the greatest footballers of all time. When you talk about Miami, we have to be in for players like that, you know?"

However, Phil Neville understands that the club has to restructure financially if

Inter Miami

want to pull such a move.

"Things will be different. The trees might have to be bigger [around the training ground]. The security might have to be tighter,"

he explained.

"The walk the players have today over to that stadium, that might have to be different. The travel might be different. The hotels we stay in might have to be different.

"But really that might be what we're aspiring to be like anyway. It's exciting, but I think it'd be a massive challenge."
