Alba will then reunite with former Barça teammates Lionel Messi, 36, and Sergio Busquets, 35.
After 11 seasons at Barça, Alba announced that he would leave the club with one year left on his contract. He had been targeted by teams in the Saudi Arabian league, but ultimately opted for the United States.
Citing sources, ESPN reported that Inter Miami is attempting to sign striker Luis Suarez, 36, a former Barça teammate of the three. Suarez currently plays for Gremio in Brazil.
He has a contract with Gremio until 2024 and has scored 13 goals in 30 games for the club, but has repeatedly complained of pain in his right knee. This has reportedly led to a stalemate in negotiations with Inter Miami.
