Major League Soccer commissioner Don Garber has said the league would be willing to think "outside the box" in order to secure a deal for Lionel Messi to the play in the United States.

In an interview with The Athletic, Garber confirmed the league would be highly interested in ensuring a deal could be struck for Messi to play in MLS, with Inter Miami CF said to be considering making an offer.

The former Barcelona forward's contract with PSG runs until June, with the option of an extra year if he decides to trigger it. Sources have told ESPN that PSG remain keen to extend Messi's contract, while he has also reportedly drawn interest from clubs in Saudi Arabia.
