Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets is expected to move to the MLS next summer by joining Inter Miami, according to reports.
The 34-year-old was linked with a move to the United States in the most recent transfer market with David Beckham’s MLS franchise circling.
And now he looks set to close the curtain on his 17-year spell at Barca and switch to Inter Miami next year, according to Spanish publication Sport.
Busquets’ current contract in Spain will expire in June 2023 and the report claims he will leave his boyhood club when it runs out.
The report adds that the midfielder has accepted he will depart and is keen on furthering his career in the States.
The Spain international would be a marquee signing for the team as well as a big name for the league.
He’s won both the World Cup and European Championship with his country and has played a pivotal role in Barcelona’s success since 2008.
Busquets, with 685 Barca appearances to his name, has won LaLiga eight times, the Copa del Rey seven times, the Spanish Super Cup eight times, and lifted the Champions League on three occasions.
The central midfielder reportedly could opt to remain at the Nou Camp for one more season following the conclusion of his current deal.
He has made five appearances this season and captained the side in their 2-0 group defeat by Bayern Munich in Europe.
Inter Miami has struggled for consistency this season but currently sits in a playoff spot in seventh in the MLS Eastern Conference.
