Neymar Jr‘s visit to Miami has been quite eventful, to say the least. Surprisingly, he has not yet had the chance to meet up with his close friend Lionel Messi, despite both being in the same city. However, the imminent Inter Miami and New York City football match could potentially facilitate this encounter. Also, a recent interaction with David Beckham certainly lends credibility to these speculations.

Reflecting on the Brazilian star’s dynamic itinerary while in Miami – he attended the victorious game by Carlos Alcaraz against Gael Monfils and the Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors match. Moreover, he also delivered the first pitch for Miami Merlin’s season-opening game. Now the next major event on Neymar’s agenda likely appears to be the Inter Miami match.

Subsequently, Neymar also publicized a photograph featuring him alongside the Beckhams on his Instagram stories. As it stands, anticipation builds as many ponder over the 32-year-old potentially gracing the forthcoming Inter Miami vs New York City match as an observer. The unexpected rendezvous just before such a pivotal event suggests a strong possibility of the ex-PSG star gracing the stands during the upcoming game.

Moreover, given his former teammate’s presence at the MLS side- Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba, and Sergio Busquets, the possibility seems even more likely. Another possibility that is becoming increasingly probable with each passing day is Neymar potentially signing with The Herons.
