Inter Miami, a Major League Soccer (MLS) club, has made a significant addition to their squad this summer transfer window by signing Spanish midfielder Sergio Busquets. The experienced midfielder recently left Barcelona and has now joined forces with Argentine superstar Lionel Messi, who also made the move to Inter Miami earlier in the summer.
The official announcement of Busquets’ signing was made on Inter Miami’s website. Barcelona had offered the midfielder a one-year contract extension, but the 35-year-old was keen on a two-year deal, which led to his decision to join Inter Miami.
Busquets is expected to make his debut in MLS before the end of July. Another former Barcelona player, Jordi Alba, has also joined Inter Miami this summer, further strengthening the team’s roster.
Tata Martino, the head coach of Inter Miami, previously managed Barcelona during the 2013/14 season. Martino’s familiarity with the Catalan club’s style of play could prove beneficial in integrating Busquets and Alba into the team.
Busquets’ contract with Inter Miami will run until 2025, just like Messi’s deal with the club. The owner of Inter Miami, Jorge Mas, is delighted with the addition of these star players, recognizing their potential to uplift the team.
Inter Miami currently finds themselves at the bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference League table, with only 19 points from 24 matches. The arrival of Busquets and Messi is expected to provide the much-needed boost to climb up the standings and compete in the league.
Last season, Busquets contributed four assists in 30 La Liga matches for Barcelona. The Catalan club secured the La Liga title with an impressive 88 points from 38 matches.
In conclusion, Inter Miami’s acquisition of Sergio Busquets adds experience and quality to their midfield. With the presence of Lionel Messi and other notable signings, the club aims to improve their position in the MLS Eastern Conference League and make a strong push for success in the upcoming matches.
