Luis Suárez signed with Inter Miami and will once again form a duo with Lionel Messi

Luis Suarez

After publicly recognizing the interest after he departed from Gremio de Porto Alegre, added to the strategic movement that the institution made to make room for him within its squad, finally this Friday one of the most brilliant transfers of this transfer market was confirmed. Luis Suárez became the new star of Inter Miami, where he will reunite with his friend Lionel Messi and will once again share a squad with the Spaniards Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba and be directed by the Argentine Gerardo Tata Martino.

“Welcome Luis Suárez, to the dream of Miami,” wrote the account on the X social network of the Fort Lauderdale franchise. It was accompanied by an image in which four children appear with the names of Sergio, Jordi Alba, Messi and Suárez along with the legend “Nothing more beautiful than playing with friends.”

After deciding to do without the services of Venezuelan Josef Martínez, a space for the center of the attack was vacant in Las Garzas and the name mentioned for several months was that of Pistolero, who was offered to be one of the Franchise Players of the institution (the others are Messi and Busquets, since Jordi Alba accepted a contract of lesser value). The attacker is coming off a great season in Brazil by scoring 26 goals and providing 17 assists in 53 appearances. At 36 years old, the former Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid of Spain was left with the pass in his possession and was a highly coveted piece in this transfer market.

Although everything seemed closed for a long time, a physical issue delayed the Uruguay national team player’s decision a bit. “On the outside of my right knee, I have hyperextension which means my knee is not extended. That’s what I had left from the surgery I had in 2020 in Barcelona in January. I had been working for 3 months and the pandemic just came, they sent us to lock and in the last month I ended up working at home alone. It is not the same as me doing quadriceps work or having a physio come and extend your knee well. What I feel is a constant sting. The luck I have is that my knee doesn’t swell. If it generated liquid I wouldn’t even be able to move it. Sometimes it gets stuck, there reaches a limit that I can’t bend it. After the games it is impressive. The day before the game I take three pills, one the next day in the morning, and hours before playing I take a Voltaren (anti-inflammatory and analgesic)”, he stated.

Inter Miami will return to activity in mid-January, on the 19th of that month when it will play its first preseason match, which will take place at the Cuscatlán Stadium in San Salvador against the national team of that country.
