The Uruguayan attacker, 36, will also reunite in Florida with two other illustrious former teammates from the Spanish club: Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba. Like champions! América beat FC Barcelona 3-2, thanks to Quiñones and Henry Suárez, who recently returned to the Uruguayan team, will thus compete in the United States in 2024, the year in which the country of the stars and stripes will organize the Copa América.

Suárez and Messi, without forgetting the Brazilian Neymar, formed a lethal trident in the Barcelona that was proclaimed champion of the Champions League and the Club World Cup in the 2014-2015 season. El Pistolero played for the Blaugrana team for six seasons (2014-2020) in which he scored 197 goals and gave 100 assists as one of Messi's preferred partners.

He also arrives at an MLS in which there are numerous outstanding Uruguayan players such as Diego Rossi (from the current champion Columbus Crew), Facundo Torres (Orlando City), César Araujo (Orlando City), Martín Cáceres (LA Galaxy), Diego Fagúndez (LA Galaxy ), Gastón Brugman (LA Galaxy), Santiago Rodríguez (New York City) and Cristian Olivera (Los Angeles FC).

Suárez played last season for the Brazilian Gremio, where he scored 29 goals in 54 games. Messi landed at Inter Miami this summer and, with the help of fellow newcomers Busquets and Alba, won the first title in history for the Florida team with the Leagues Cup.

How did Miami do?

However, an injury to the Argentine star caused him to miss several MLS regular season games and Inter Miami was left out of the MLS Cup Playoffs. Inter Miami will star in the opening match of the 2024 MLS season with a home match against Real Salt Lake on February 21.
