Suarez Set To Link Up With Messi At Inter Miami  –Martino

Inter Miami coach Tata Martino has revealed that plans are in place for Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez to join Argentine legend Lionel Messi at the MLS club in January.

Messi moved to Major League Soccer outfit Inter Miami from French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2022.

He has since gone on to steer the American club to their first title ever which is the Leagues Cup.

Suarez has been linked with a move to the club since the summer but a move hasn’t materialized due to his contract with Brazilian club Gremio.

However Gremio have revealed that Suarez would be released from his contract in December 2023.

Even Suarez himself previously stated that he would be thrilled to play at the Miami, Florida based club.

In an interview with ESPN, Martino said the club would be keen on signing Suarez.

“Within our analysis of the upcoming season, and the needs we may have, we have an analysis with Luis and without Luis,” Martino said.

“When the time comes to make Suarez’s situation at Inter Miami official, we’ll be prepared to go in the corresponding direction.”

It was earlier announced by Gremio coach, Renato Gaucho that Suarez would depart the club in December 2022 after the conclusion of the Brazilian Serie A season.

“He was somebody who came through here and not only made his mark at Gremio, but I believe that all of Brazil recognizes it,” Gaucho said.

“I have had the pleasure to be working with him, we will miss him a lot.”

Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba who are both former teammates of Messi and Suarez at Barcelona moved to Inter Miami in the last summer window.

Suarez is Uruguay’s all time topscorer with 68 goals in 137 matches.

He has netted nine goals and notched seven assists in 23 Brazilian Serie A games this season.

Gremio are fourth in the Brazilian Serie A standings with 44 points from 27 matches.

Inter Miami are 14th in the MLS Eastern Conference table with a total of 34 points obtained from 33 games.
