Lionel Messi wants a team with which he can compete next season in MLS.
Inter Miami will open the soccer year with a tour and some friendlies in order to measure the development of its squad for the 2024 MLS season, in which they intend to consolidate their position with the ‘Pulga’ and their new recruits.
After the arrival of Luis Suarez and added to the presence of Messi, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets, the arrival of Coutinho would be the icing on the cake.
In early January 2018, the Brazilian was transferred from Liverpool to Barcelona in one of the most expensive transfer deals. Five years later, the attacking midfielder’s career hasn’t gone to plan and Aston Villa, who currently own his rights, is looking for a club for his future.
He is currently on loan until the end of the season at Al Duhail in Qatar and Unai Emery isn’t considering him for the future.
Could Coutinho land in MLS?
According to MLS Multiplex, a site specialized in Major League Soccer, Aston Villa has already started talks with several clubs in the U.S. with the initial intention of sealing a new loan.
The portal reports that the English team is also open to the idea of a sale, although it will seek an offer similar to the 20 million euros it paid two years ago.
New midfield reinforcement
Inter Miami continues with its plan of having a competitive team for next season in MLS. Coach Tata Martino, who already knows him after they both played together at Atlanta United, now has a new midfield reinforcement in the form of U.S. international Julian Gressel.
