Sergio Busquets has chosen to follow in the footsteps of his former teammate, Lionel Messi, by moving to Inter Miami this summer.

An ESPN report reveals that the MLS club has announced Busquets' arrival in America through a social media post.

As it is known, Sergio Busquets' contract with Barcelona expired at the end of June 2023. The 34-year-old footballer has expressed his intention to end his 18-year career with the Catalan giants.

Busquets, who has made a total of 722 appearances for Barcelona, is rumored to be reuniting with Lionel Messi. La Pulga had already decided to join Inter Miami after parting ways with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

A move to the MLS has become an enticing prospect for Busquets. He has the opportunity to reunite with his former colleague at Blaugrana. Busquets and La Pulga spent 13 seasons together, from 2008 to 2021.

Both players were part of the successful Barcelona team that won three Champions League titles, eight La Liga titles, and six Copa del Rey trophies during their time at Camp Nou.

Sergio Busquets Also Receives Offers from Saudi Arabian Clubs

Similarly to Lionel Messi, Busquets had also received transfer offers from Saudi Arabian clubs. ESPN claims that the player even negotiated with Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal in recent weeks.

However, Busquets ultimately chose to join Inter Miami, which was reportedly offering a lower financial package compared to other interested teams.

Reports suggest that the decision was made by the Spanish footballer because he had expressed his desire to play in the United States.

Jordi Alba Could Follow Suit

Not only will Sergio Busquets reunite with La Pulga, but his decision to join the MLS club also opens the possibility of being followed by his former teammate, Jordi Alba.

According to ESPN reports, the 34-year-old footballer agreed to terminate his contract with Barcelona last month, despite having previously been tied to the Catalan giants until 2024.

Rumors have circulated that Jordi Alba has attracted interest from Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, and Saudi Arabian clubs. He is also being pursued by Inter Miami in the summer transfer market of 2023.
