MLS: Luis Suarez could finally partner Lionel Messi in Inter Miami’s attack

Luis Suarez is set to reunite with Lionel Messi at Inter Miami after telling Brazilain club to terminate his deal

Luis Suarez could end up joining Lionel Messi at Inter Miami after all.

The Uruguayan striker says he has agreed to terminate his contract with Brazilian side Gremio early.

Suarez’s deal was set to expire in December 2024, he will now depart the club in December 2023, when he will become a free agent.

There have been big doubts over the former Liverpool and Barcelona striker’s future in the game due to a recurring knee problem.

But Inter Miami have been actively scouting him this summer, as they want him to join ex-Nou Camp teammates Messi, Sergio Busquets and Jodi Alba at the MLS club.

Gremio has insisted he will be going nowhere this summer, but he could now join his old mates in the United States for free in the New Year.

“I feel that next year I will not be able to perform due to my fitness and the high demands of the Brazilian championship, which is why the club and I have spoken about ending my contract [with Gremio] a year early,” Suarez has said.

“That would be in December. The club agreed and I’m grateful to them.

“I don’t know if I’ll continue to play somewhere else because I have a chronic issue with my knee that you all know about.

“I’d ask Gremio supporters to value the fact that they have a 37-year-old player who always plays despite having a lot of pain in his knee. That’s all I ask.

“I’m well aware that Inter Miami spoke with Gremio and that the club told them that I have a contract. I can say that [Inter Miami] has not spoken to me.”
