And fellow countryman Franco Jara who has shared the stage with Messi in the national team has stated that he would love to see him move to the US. He recently told 90min via Soccer Laduma:

"If he (Messi) comes to play (in MLS), I'd kiss his feet.
"It would be insane, a madness. Over the course of my career, when I was in the (Argentina) national team, I had the chance to share (the pitch) with players like them, but having him face to face is totally different.
"MLS have brought in Zlatan (Ibrahimovic), (Gonzalo) Higuain, let's hope Messi gets the opportunity.
"As much for Messi as for Cristiano (Ronaldo), it's an opportunity to live outside of football, to be a normal person.
"Me, you, we like to go out to eat, go to the cinema, go to the supermarket to buy and the United States offers that."
