Inter Miami continue to cause a stir on the footballing scene by today announcing the signing of Jordi Alba, who joins the ranks of LIonel Messi and Sergio Busquets. This trio of longtime friends are destined to become the true stars of the franchise, as part of an ambitious project to propel the club to new heights. According to information obtained by MD, the formalization of this major acquisition is scheduled for Tuesday.
After completing a successful stint at FC Barcelona, Jordi Alba took some time to think about his next destination and eventually opted for Inter Miami to play out his final years of Major League Soccer (MLS) career. Although he has received other offers, notably from Saudi Arabia, the left side has favored the family project, especially since he will soon be a dad for the third time. He was also seduced by the challenge of playing in Miami, a city that has great appeal at all levels.
The transfer of Jordi Alba to Inter Miami has been matured for a long time, since the Florida team had to put in place salary adjustments to be able to integrate the player’s contract from L’Hospitalet. Alba will be considered a “TAM” player (targeted allocation money), which means that he will occupy a place below the three symbol players Messi, Busquets and Josef Martínez. He will enjoy a salary capped at nearly $2 million per season.
Another target of Inter Miami is striker Luis Suárez, however, his arrival promises to be more complex and will only materialize if he manages to terminate his contract with the Brazilian club Gremio, with which he is linked until December 2024.
