Inter Miami CF announced today that it has signed five-time LaLiga champion and UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, and Conmebol Copa América winner Luis Suárez to a deal through the 2024 Major League Soccer (MLS) season. The renowned Uruguayan striker will join the squad ahead of the 2024 MLS season after being crowned the Brazilian league’s Best Player and Best Striker for his 26 goals and 17 assists over 53 games while leading Grêmio to the Campeonato Gacho and Recopa Gacha.
“We are happy to welcome world class striker Luis Suarez to our club. Luis is a fierce competitor whose winning drive embodies what we want out of our players. We promised our fans we would pursue the world’s best players to build a squad that can compete at the highest echelons in the Americas. Coming off an award-winning season in Brazil, Luis will be a key addition to our roster. We will continue to be ambitious and always strive to pursue the Freedom to Dream,” said Managing Owner Jorge Mas.
“We are delighted to have a player of Luis’ quality and passion for the game join our Club. He joins a squad that is inspiring the next generation and we look forward to seeing him take to the field with both former teammates and young players from our Academy,” said Co-Owner David Beckham.
“I’m very happy and excited to take on this new challenge with Inter Miami. I can’t wait to get started, and I’m ready to work to make the dream of winning more titles with this great Club a reality. I’m optimistic about what we can achieve together with our shared ambition,” said Suárez. “I will give my all to bring joy to these great fans I’ve heard so much about while I wear Inter Miami colors, and look forward to reuniting with great friends and players. I’m also eager to meet my new teammates and coaches.”
Suárez will play for Inter Miami alongside former FC Barcelona teammates Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba. The group achieved history in Spain by winning four LaLiga titles in five seasons and the UEFA Champions League.
