Inter Miami targeting Luis Suarez as marquee signing
David Beckham might be famous for representing the likes of Real Madrid, but his first major signing as the owner of Inter Miami might be Barcelona's Luis Suarez. It has been reported that the newly formed the MLS franchise are very keen on taking the former Liverpool star. Suarez is reportedly considering his options away from the Camp Nou in order to secure one big contract that could be the last of his career. He has reportedly identified the Major League Soccer as a strong destination where he will be able to test himself at a reasonable level while still making a lot of money.
Inter Miami know very well about the quality of Luis Suarez, who has been in excellent form for Barcelona even at the age of 33. He has come up with 19 goals in all competitions for the team along with a decent return of 12 assists. Suarez has been a regular feature of the team, but it is expected that Barcelona will look to replace him sooner rather than later due to his age. The 33-year-old only has a contract with the club until the summer of 2021.
He will look to move to a club where he can get regular game time ahead of the 2022 World Cup. Aside from the obvious advantage of high wages, Inter Miami will also give him enough competitive football since many South Americans already play in the MLS.
The MLS franchise are reportedly set to come up with an offer for the striker in the next few weeks. It is expected that the presence of a strong Hispanic community in the state and at the club will be a key motivating factor for Suarez to join Inter Miami. Suarez could also exercise his option of extending the contract with Barcelona by another year if he plays in 60% of the Spanish club’s matches next season.
