It was rumoured during the summer that the MLS club were heavily interested in the defensive midfielder, with the aim of making the World Cup winner their franchise player.

The 34-year-old is reported by Sport to have made his intentions to leave Barcelona known a while ago, as well as stating that he’s passionate about his new US adventure.  

Despite starting four out of a possible six games this season, the emergence of youth in the shape of Pedri and Gavi will have no doubt provided a timely reminder that the end is near.

A move to Inter Miami, who are owned by Becks, would see Busquets play under former Manchester United midfielder Phil Neville who is the manager of the MLS outfit.

The midfield maestro has also been repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League in the last few seasons.


According to reports the Spanish midfielder has the option to play for an extra year at Barcelona beyond this season.

It’s claimed he’s due around £44million.
