Messi and Suarez Miami reunited, and the power of Uruguay's striker has not diminished
In the early morning of the 6th, Beijing time, according to US media reports, the American professional league team Miami International is finalizing the transfer deal of Uruguayan veteran Suarez, and the two sides are about to sign a one-year contract. If all goes well, the striker, who is the same age as Messi, will play with Messi for the second time in his career, following his time at Barcelona from 2014 to 2020.
In the summer of 2014, Suarez, who had fully proven himself in Liverpool at that time, arrived at Barcelona for a transfer amount of more than 80 million euros and was able to become teammates with Messi. In their six seasons together, the pair won a number of trophies, including the Champions League, and Suarez also won the European Golden Boot in 2015-16. It can be said that Suarez ushered in the peak of his career at Barcelona.
In the summer of 2020, the then 33-year-old "Su Ya" left Barcelona to join Atletico Madrid, and also ended this cooperation with Messi. Although the two did not play on the same team, their relationship became closer instead of estranged, and the media has filmed the two and their families "in the same frame" more than once, which shows the strength of their friendship.
In July last year, "Su Ya" ended his many years of football career in Europe and returned to play for his former parent team, the Uruguayan national team. Just when the outside world thought that he might play here until he retired, he landed in the Brazilian league at the beginning of this year and became the absolute main force of Gremio. Over the course of a season, he made 54 appearances in all competitions, scoring 24 goals and providing 12 assists. This data makes people sigh that although they are no longer young, "Su Ya" is still very competitive in South America.
Now, after finishing his trip to Brazil, Suarez has decided to go to the Major League in the United States, and his new club is Miami International, where his friend Messi plays. According to reports, the specific salary of the Uruguayan has not yet been finalized, but the two sides have basically agreed that he will sign a one-year contract, with an option to renew his contract for one year.
Due to the strict requirements for the signing of designated players in the major leagues, each team is only allowed to sign three players, and if all goes well, Suarez will replace Gregore as the team's new "designated player".
According to media analysis, as Inter Miami will participate in a number of competitions including the league, the US Open Cup, the CONCACAF Champions Cup and the North American League Cup in the new season, the team hopes to enrich the personnel reserve in the forward line, which is why the team still chooses to invite Suarez to join on the basis of having players such as Messi, Campana, Facundo Farias, Robert Taylor, Robbie Robinson, etc.
Messi + Suarez, such a combination, do you expect it?
