Despite long-standing interest in the MLS, Messi opted to sign a lucrative contract with Paris Saint-Germain when leaving Barcelona earlier this summer.
However, while the Argentine has the option of extending his deal at Parc des Princes until 2024, Higuain expects Inter Miami to be in contact with the French giants.
Speaking to ESPN, Higuain said: "I don't want to get in trouble, I don't know about Leo in Miami.
"He signed for two years with PSG. The club wants it, we'll see."
Messi is yet to score or contribute an assist for PSG having been restricted to just 114 minutes of football. body check tags ::
