Busquets also joins Miami with Messi

Sergio Busquets has held talks with Inter Miami CF about the possibility of following Lionel Messi to the Major League Soccer franchise, sources have confirmed.

Busquets, 34, is also in negotiations with Saudi Arabian sides Al Nassr and Al Hilal after announcing last month he will not renew his contract with Barcelona when it expires on June 30.

Sources say that Busquets’ next club, save any late twists, is expected to come from one of those three.

Messi’s announcement on Wednesday that he has turned down the chance to move to Saudi Arabia or return to Barca in favour of a move to Miami could influence Busquets’ decision.

The two spent over a decade playing alongside each other at Camp Nou and remain close friends, regularly meeting up in recent months when Messi has been back in the Catalan city.

After confirming his MLS switch, though, Messi said he was unaware of Busquets’ plans and that their decisions were not linked.

Busquets has spoken previously about a desire to play in the United States, even name-dropping the possibility of moving to Miami last November._ESPN
