Luis Suarez has held talks with MLS franchise Inter Miami as the mad scramble to secure one of world’s top strikers begins.
Suarez was told this week by new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman that he does not feature in his plans and is free to leave the club.
The Dutchman has been criticised for his handling of the situation, telling the Uruguayan by phone, along with three other stars, that he was no longer wanted at the Nou Camp.
But that does not change the fact that the former Liverpool frontman is now being forced to plan for his own future, and according to the Independent, Inter Miami have stolen a march on the rivals for his signature.
They state that while Suarez does intend to stay in Europe as a first choice, Miami are in a strong position to offer more money – with others likely to be put off offering mega wages due to his age and injury concerns.
