Luis Suárez appears to be ready to join his friend Lionel Messi at Inter Miami, according to reports in the United States press. The number 9 and the club would be finalizing the agreement for a one-year contract.
As a result, the information was released this Wednesday by the Miami Herald newspaper. At the beginning of November, the Uruguayan newspaper El País had also reported that Luisito had agreed to play for the MLS club after ending his time at Grêmio a Brazilian team.
According to the American publication, Suárez can occupy one of the team’s three “Designated Player” vacancies, intended for players with salaries above US$651,000, the limit established in 2023.
But Inter Miami can also use a quota called “Targeted Allocation Money (TAM)”, keeping this spot open for another player. The mechanism would see Suárez receive a salary below the limit, plus a type of contract bonus.
According to the newspaper, this would allow Inter Miami to add Suárez to a squad that already has “high-priced” players such as Messi, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, without violating the rules of the North American league.
Now, Suárez will play his last game in Brazilian football against Fluminense, this Wednesday (6), at Maracanã, in the last round of the Brasileirão. In the coming weeks, he should report to Florida for the start of Inter Miami’s pre-season, scheduled for January 10th.
