Inter Miami sporting director Chris Henderson reveals the latest update on Luis Suarez’s rumored transfer to the Herons this winter.
During Inter Miami’s end-of-the-year press conference, Henderson spoke about the possibility of bringing the Uruguayan forward this winter. He admitted that club links keep coming, but also revealed that he is still a Gremio player in Brazil. His speaking out on the matter gives Herons supporters a reason to be excited, as Messi could help them recruit their new striker.
Suárez and Messi played together at FC Barcelona for six years, where the Uruguayan scored 198 goals for the Catalan team. The South American pair teamed up with Brazilian star Neymar to form the famous MSN duo that troubled Europe for three years. Now, Messi is slowly recruiting his old friends in MLS, with Barca teammates Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets already at South Beach. If Suarez were to join, he would be the third ex-teammate to join Messi in Miami.
Henderson said of Suarez, “He’s with Grêmio at the moment, so we don’t want to comment on a player who isn’t on our roster.” “He’s another player who has always been associated with our team and it’s great that great players from around the world are associated with Inter Miami and want to come here.”
The legendary Uruguay striker is currently on international duty with his country, and was in the 2-0 win over Argentina last week. Before Suarez returns to his club Gremio, they face Bolivia in their next FIFA World Cup qualifier on Tuesday evening. The Brazilian team is back in action against Atletico MG on Sunday.
