As Luis Suarez bid farewell to the Brazillian football club Gremio, rumours are circulating hinting that the former Barcelona striker might join his friend and ex-teammate Lionel Messi at Inter Miami.
The hearsay comes after the Uruguayan player's contract with the Brazillian club will expire in December leaving him as a free agent as of January 1, 2024 — allowing him to negotiate to join any other team he wishes.
The news has been confirmed by Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano who has revealed that the David Beckham-owned club Inter Miami will reach out to Suarez for his possible signing for the 2024 Major League Soccer (MLS) season, marca.com reported.
Rumours regarding El Pistolero's possible move to Inter Miami to join Messi — who joined the US team in July earlier this year — were further fuelled by Gremio coach Renato Gaucho who said that Inter Miami intends to ink a deal with Suarez in the coming weeks as he will become a free agent.
Despite being 36-year-old the Uruguayan striker remains a formidable asset on the pitch as reflected by his stats with the Brazillian club as he scored 23 goals and provided 17 assists during his 51 appearances for Gremio.
Suarez may choose to retire even though it appears that Inter Miami will be his final destination.
His decision to join the MLS is still up in the air, and supporters and analysts are waiting nervously for his word.
Meanwhile, according to Goal.com, Messi's potential retirement hint may cast doubt on Inter Miami's hopes of a spectacular reunion with Suarez.
