INTER MIAMI are still hoping to sign Lionel Messi, according to reports.

The MLS outfit were on the verge of agreeing a sensational deal to sign the PSG ace back in November.


And they were hoping to make Messi the highest-paid player in American top-flight history.

But Marca claimed the 35-year-old is expected to stay with PSG and sign a contract extension.

And the Parisians also want to improve his £700,000-a-week wages.
