Federico Redondo joins Lionel Messi at Inter Miami for deal worth $8m: MLS transfer news
Redondo was also courted by Liverpool and Manchester City
Bayern Munich were defeated by Inter Miami as they prepared to sign Federico Redondo from Argentinos Juniors.
The Major League Soccer team are expected to defeat Bayern Munich in the competition to recruit midfielder Redondo from Argentinos Juniors for $8 million (£6.3m/€7.4m). Florian Plettenberg reports that the team is looking to add another Argentine to its lineup after Lionel Messi.
Although the player was heavily linked to a move to the Bundesliga powerhouses, neither the club’s January transfer window bid nor their summer pursuit of him was formalised.
The 21-year-old is the son of Fernando Redondo, a former player for AC Milan and Real Madrid. Redondo joined El Bicho’s senior squad in 2022 after completing the club’s youth programme. He made 45 appearances for his team in all competitions during the 2022–2023 season, tallying two goals and dishing out the same number of assists.
