Inter Miami are interested in signing a quartet Barcelona legends in the next two years targeting Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.
David Beckham’s MLS side have made some notable signings in their short history so far, bringing Gonzalo Higuain, Blaise Matuidi, Kieran Gibbs and DeAndre Yedlin to Florida, but now they’re looking to really step it up in terms of blockbuster arrivals.
Spanish publication Sport report that Inter Miami want to wait until the four Barcelona heroes’ contracts at their various clubs expire before rushing towards free transfers.
Suarez is out of contract with Atletico Madrid at the end of this season and could be lured to America at 35 as he is regularly on the bench under Diego Simeone.
Lionel Messi’s PSG contract runs until 2023 and he would of course be the biggest signing of all if Beckham could then lure the 34-year-old to Miami.
Busquets (33) and Alba (33) still play for Barca with the former signed until 2023 and Alba a year later.
The two South Americans have been linked with an American move in the past and appear more likely to play in MLS than the Spanish pair, but Inter Miami are reportedly interested in all four.
Things are not going well on the field for Inter Miami as Phil Neville’s side endure a shocking start to the 2022 MLS season.
A goalless draw against the Chicago Fire on the opening day of the season has been the highlight so far. They lost the next three games to Austin, Los Angeles and Cincinnati, conceding 10 goals in the process.
However, Neville has spoken positively, saying ahead of their weekend game against the Houston Dynamo: “They are a great group of guys who just want to be good for this football club.
“They went so well together; Now they just have to transfer that to the pitch. The things I see in training really excite me; The things I see in training are really positive.”
