Luis Suarez joins MLS club Inter Miami

Suarez signed a contract that will keep him with Inter Miami until the conclusion of the 2024 campaign.

The Uruguayan professional footballer, Luis Suarez announced that he will be joining the Major League Soccer (MLS) club, Inter Miami.

Suarez, who will turn 37 next month, signed a contract that will keep him in the MLS until the conclusion of the 2024 campaign.

Suarez signed a free move with Inter Miami after parting ways with Grêmio FBPA of Brazil last month. In 53 games with the Porto Alegre club throughout every competition, he scored 26 goals, and in 2023, he was named the best player in Brazil’s Serie A, claiming the Golden Ball Award.

Suarez will play alongside his former FC Barcelona companions Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Lionel Messi. During their six-year tenure at the Camp Nou, the quintet won four LALIGA championships and a UEFA Champions League in 2015.

Inter Miami, co-owned by former legendary England captain David Beckham, will kick off their 2024 MLS season on February 21 at home against Real Salt Lake.

Managing Owner, Jorge Mas, said, “We are happy to welcome world class striker Luis Suarez to our club. Luis is a fierce competitor whose winning drive embodies what we want out of our players. We promised our fans we would pursue the world’s best players to build a squad that can compete at the highest echelons in the Americas. Coming off an award-winning season in Brazil, Luis will be a key addition to our roster. We will continue to be ambitious and always strive to pursue the Freedom to Dream.”

Co-Owner, David Beckham, said, “We are delighted to have a player of Luis’ quality and passion for the game join our Club. He joins a squad that is inspiring the next generation and we look forward to seeing him take to the field with both former teammates and young players from our Academy.”

On the development, Suarez, stated, “I’m very happy and excited to take on this new challenge with Inter Miami. I can’t wait to get started, and I’m ready to work to make the dream of winning more titles with this great Club a reality. I’m optimistic about what we can achieve together with our shared ambition. I will give my all to bring joy to these great fans I’ve heard so much about while I wear Inter Miami colors, and look forward to reuniting with great friends and players. I’m also eager to meet my new teammates and coaches.”

Chief Business Officer, Xavier Asensi, commented, “This is another monumental moment for our Club as we continue our ascent. We have always dreamed of being a club that could have a lasting impact on fútbol in the United States, and we believe that bringing Luis to Inter Miami is another positive step in that direction. Luis is an incredible player that will be a fantastic asset for the Club, and we’re excited to have him with us.”

Chief Soccer Officer and Sporting Director, Chris Henderson, said, “Luis is an outstanding striker with a track record of excellence at the very top levels of the sport. He has proven himself to be a singular talent in every league he’s played in over the course of his career thus far. We’re looking to build on the successes of last season in 2024 and think Luis will be an important addition for us as we prepare to compete in several top competitions.”
