Disaster for Lionel Messi and Inter Miami! Blockbuster transfer for Federico Redondo – son of Real Madrid great Fernando – falls through due MLS regulations on payment methods

Inter Miami’s blockbuster transfer for Federico Redondo has fallen through due to MLS regulations over payment methodology, per a report.

TNT Sports Argentina reports that the Herons’ superstar transfer for the Argentine youth international has fallen through. Redondo was set to sign for $8m (£6m) from Argentinos Juniors, but now, it appears that the move is off.

Redondo is the son of Real Madrid great Fernando, who is widely considered one of the greatest defensive midfielders ever. For Miami, he would have filled a crucial and gaping hole in their midfield, especially with an aging Sergio Busquets already on the sideline due to injury. The Herons had initially beat the likes of Bayern Munich, Man Utd and Los Blancos to the signing of Redondo.

Now, by missing out on the Argentine midfielder, not only have Inter Miami missed out on a key signing but they have also left a hole in their midfield to start the season.

Redondo is a regular for the Argentine U-23 side alongside MLS star Thiago Almada, with both set to feature in this summer’s Paris Olympic Games.

The Herons will now look to see if they can – somehow – salvage a deal for Redondo. However, their priority now has to be Wednesday’s MLS season opener against Real Salt Lake.
