Reunion of Barca players at Inter Miami

Sergio Busquets has officially joined Inter Miami for the 2023 season. The 35-year-old player has signed a two-year contract with the Major League Soccer (MLS) club. The Herons has just announced one of the most important transfers in history. They brought in Lionel Messi on a free transfer, after his contract with PSG expired.

However, behind all the hubbub over La Pulga's transfer, there is one other important player who has come to Florida. At the same time as Messi's introduction, Inter Miami also announced the transfer of Sergio Busquets former teammate of Messi at Barca. Just like Messi, the midfielder also comes on a free transfer. Before joining Inter Miami, the Spaniard played for Barcelona for a long time.

Talking of Inter Miami, David Beckham’s side is struggling in MLS 2023, so far. Well, they use the transfer market to improve the situation. Even though there is no relegation in MLS, David Beckham's club certainly doesn't want to be at the bottom of the standings. The 36-year-old Albicelesten was brought in from PSG on a free transfer. Apart from Messi, there is Busquets who is also close. Just like Messi, Inter Miami also gave Busquets a rousing welcome and has a contract until December 2025. Busquets will wear number 5 at Inter Miami. That is the jersey number that Busquets usually wore when he played for Barcelona.

However, Inter Miami's new player project is not over yet. The club, which is identical to the colour pink, still has other plans. Inter Miami is still courting Jordi Alba, another former Barcelona player. Alba is currently on a free transfer after terminating his contract with Barcelona early. Inter Miami is also said to be targeting Luis Suarez (Gremio) and Andres Iniesta (free transfers). So, if the three players above follow in the footsteps of Busquets and Messi, then the Florida-based football club will hold a Barcelona U-35 reunion. They were part of the glory of Barcelona under coach Pep Guardiola.
