Luis Suarez has hinted at a possible reunion with Lionel Messi after admitting he could join David Beckham’s Inter Miami franchise with the Argentina international.

Suarez and Messi developed a tremendous partnership during their time at Barcelona and won the LaLiga title four times and the Champions League once as a result.

Suarez – who is a free agent after being released by Atletico Madrid – said he would like to reunite with Messi at Inter Miami ‘in a few years’ as they have a ‘great connection’.

Interviewed on Spanish radio El Larguero on whether he and Messi would consider joining the MLS franchise, Suarez said: “With Messi in Miami in a few years?”

‘I hope…you never know what’s going on. We have a great connection. There is nothing better than seeing two colleagues happy outside so that they perform inside.

Suarez wanted to stay at Atletico Madrid for the 2022-23 season, but the club have declared their intention to part ways with the 35-year-old ahead of his final game.

Suarez wasn’t informed of his departure until the day before his last match. As a result, the Uruguay forward was left sobbing on the bench after being substituted off the pitch.

Speaking about the situation, Suarez said: “I wish [to stay for 2022-23], yes. Rafa Alique (Atlético communications director) told me the day before my farewell, that they were going to say goodbye to me.

‘I didn’t know anything. I am 35 years old and I was also thinking about my future. We had a meeting with the club in December, we agreed to talk in February and Alique told me that they were going to say goodbye to me and I said: “Well, at least someone from the club say something”. He too was supposedly surprised.

When asked if a move to MLS would be considered during the summer transfer window, Suarez said his priority was to find a club in Europe.

“No, it’s not in my head yet. My head is in Europe. Spain? Obviously one of them left a great legacy here, I’m very proud of the career I had here,” Suarez said.

“I have received proposals from here, but I am still analyzing them. I want to see the project to be able to compete at a high level.

Meanwhile, Messi has been linked with a move away from Paris Saint-Germain after struggling to settle in Ligue 1 this season.

Nonetheless, PSG are eager to keep the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner for at least a year as they plan to build the squad around him.
