Busquets joins Messi at Inter Miami

Inter Miami have announced the signing of former Barcelona captain Sergio Busquets on a two-year deal.

World Cup winner Busquets will occupy a Designated Player slot and is expected to join the team in the coming days.

The move will see the nine-time La Liga title winner reunited with former Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi, who made the switch to the Major League Soccer side following his departure from Paris Saint-Germain.

“This is a special and exciting opportunity that I’m very excited to take. I’m looking forward to this next step in my career with Inter Miami,” said Busquets, who announced his departure from Barcelona in May.
