According to Alfredo Martinez on SPORT, Sergio Busquets could be moving closer to leaving Barcelona come the end of the season.
The midfielder has been linked with a move to Inter Miami, who in turn, are confident of signing the player as he nears the expiry of his contract with Barcelona.
The MLS giants have made the necessary reservations to sign the Barcelona star, who has been identified as the ideal man to become the face of the club.
Inter Miami, partly owned by footballing icon David Beckham, have lured in many top-class individuals since its inception. The club were recently home to former Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain and French international Blaise Matuidi.
As per the report, Inter Miami have started preparing for the season ahead. As part of their plans to reduce the salary budget for the squad, they are expected to sanction the exit of Mexican attacking midfielder Rodolfo Pizarro.
The 28-year-old has been with Inter Miami for two years now, but he spent the entirety of 2022 on loan at Mexican outfit Monterrey. Rodolfo’s exit from Inter Miami could pave the way for the club to sign Busquets ahead of the new edition of MLS.
Beckham is confident the Barcelona veteran will join the club in June. He is even anticipating the arrival of Lionel Messi, even though the Argentine is reportedly closing in on a contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain.
Barcelona, though, are not expected to give up so easily as far as their bid to keep hold of Busquets is concerned.
The coaching staff led by Xavi is determined to retain the midfielder’s service next season, and as we approach the second half of the campaign, it will be interesting to see whether the club succeed in convincing the veteran captain to prolong his stay at Camp Nou.
