Arriving this summer at Inter Miami, Lionel Messi is seeing his team transform into FC Barcelona. After Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, it is Luis Suarez who arrives.

After two decades spent at FC Barcelona and two seasons with Paris Saint-Germain, Lionel Messi chose to end his professional football career with the American Major League Soccer. Arriving in the summer of 2023 at Inter Miami, the eight-time Ballon d’Or has regained a smile that had left him during his stay in Paris. In David Beckham’s club, Lionel Messi took the opportunity to reunite with two former friends from his Blaugrana days. And a third is about to join him in turn.

According to information disclosed on Friday by Fabrizio Romano, Luis Suarez would be closer than ever to signing with Inter Miami. Teammate of Lionel Messi between 2014 and 2020 at Barça, the Uruguayan international then took charge of Atlético de Madrid (2020-2022) before signing for a season with his training club CF Nacional, then heading to Brazil to wear the Grêmio jersey. Now aged thirty-six, Luis Suarez should therefore offer himself a final freelance role alongside “La Pulga”.

At least one year

The journalist also indicated that Luis Suarez, free on December 31, should commit to one year with Miami, with an additional year as an option. If all this comes to fruition, it would bring the number of former FC Barcelona players to four, with Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets.
