Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets to Team Up at Inter Miami
Inter Miami, the Major League Soccer (MLS) club, is set to welcome a new star player alongside Lionel Messi. Sergio Busquets, who recently bid farewell to Barcelona in the 2022-23 season, is reportedly close to joining the American club. The Spanish midfielder has been exploring his options and it appears that he has chosen to continue his career in the MLS.
According to sources from Catalonia, Busquets has agreed to sign with Inter Miami until 2025. He will join Messi as one of the franchise players, adding more firepower to the team’s roster.
Busquets’ move to the MLS does not come as a surprise, as he has been considering the option for some time. He took his time to decide whether to stay in Europe or make a permanent move to the United States.
The presence of Messi in Inter Miami has undoubtedly influenced Busquets’ decision. There have also been rumors of Jordi Alba potentially joining the team. While Alba initially denied any connection between his future and Messi’s, it seems unlikely now.
An official announcement from the MLS and Inter Miami is expected soon. The details of Messi’s contract with the club are still being finalized. The second half of the 2023 MLS season promises to be thrilling, especially for Inter Miami, who currently sits at the bottom of their West Zone and faces slim chances of qualifying for the Play-Offs.
When Will Messi Make His Debut?
Although nothing has been confirmed yet, it is anticipated that Messi will make his debut on July 21.
