Breaking News; Messi ready to return to Inter Miami vs D.C. United.

Lionel Messi is likely to be available for Inter Miami’s Major League Soccer home game against D.C. United on Saturday after recuperating from a left knee injury.


Messi practiced freely with his teammates on Friday after missing Wednesday’s goalless draw against Orlando City.


“He trained well…[and] we are hopeful. On Friday, Inter Miami boss Gerardo Martino informed reporters that the plan is for him to play.


The 36-year-old Argentina captain was injured during the first half of the Florida team’s 3-2 away triumph over Montreal last Saturday.


Messi left the field a few minutes later, but Martino claimed the attacker continued to play with the injury throughout the second half of the game at Saputo Stadium.


“He received a knock to the knee which troubled him until yesterday,” Martino reported.


Inter Miami currently lead the MLS Eastern Conference standings with 28 points from 14 outings, a point ahead of second-placed Cincinnati, who have a game in hand.
