Despite their awkward standing in Major League Soccer, Inter Miami have been surely punching above its weight when it comes to the transfer market.
The MLS outfit completed by far the biggest acquisition in North American footballing history by roping in Lionel Messi earlier in the summer. That was followed by the signing of Sergio Busquets, who joins the club on a free transfer.
Several reports have linked Inter Miami with a move for another ex-Barcelona great, Jordi Alba. The veteran fullback has become a free agent this summer after he decided to mutually terminate his contract at Camp Nou.
Inter Miami, though, have more ideas. It appears the MLS giants, partly and quite ironically owned by former Real Madrid superstar David Beckham, now want to sign another revered Barcelona icon, reports RAC1.
The player in question is none other than Andres Iniesta. RAC1 reports the veteran has received an offer from Inter Miami, effectively giving him an opportunity to reunite with Messi and Busquets – a prospect that was quite unthinkable for many not more than a few years ago.
Iniesta ended his five-year-long association with Vissel Kobe recently, at the age of 39. But he has shown no signs of stopping. His situation has not gone unnoticed either, with Inter Miami ready to snap him this summer.
Apart from the MLS outfit, Iniesta has received offers from Saudi Arabia as well – a much more lucrative one presumably. The player has remained quiet about his future, though he is set to make a decision in the coming days.
With Alba and Iniesta potentially joining the ranks, there is no doubt which club Barcelona fans will be supporting in the upcoming edition of MLS.
