In Miami, Messi will not have to worry much about lanague restrictions, as Spanish is the common language here. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 72% of Miami residents at five years old and older speak Spanish at home, while only 22.7% speak English.

Miami also offers special treatment for Messi. The two main MLS sponsors, Apple and Adidas, both want to extract a part of their revenue or profit from MLS to share with Messi. And MLS promised Messi the right to buy a team here after hanging up his boots.

Most likely Messi's contract with Inter Miami is valid for three years, but he has the right to leave every year if he wants. That means the 36-year-old superstar can still return to European champion anytime if he is not happy in Florida.
