The two were longtime teammates at Barcelona. Later, the playground relationship turned into friendship. Even after being separated, they wanted to say goodbye to football by playing together. Although the departure is a distant topic, it is now known that Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are going to pair up again.

In addition to Messi, Suarez will also find Barca teammates Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba in Miami. On December 22, Inter Miami confirmed the signing of Uruguayan striker Suarez. The Florida club also announced when and where Suarez will be introduced to the fans.

Citing Inter Miami's communications department, Spanish media outlet AS reported that Suarez will be officially introduced to the media on January 13 after team training. The club will start preparing for the new season from that day.

Miami's practice sessions will be held at the DRV PNK Stadium-adjacent Florida Blue Training Center. Messi will start training at 9:30 am local time. Suarez is scheduled to be introduced at 11:40 a.m. after practice. Team coach Gerardo Martino will also be present with Suarez.

In 2020, Suarez left Barcelona and joined Brazilian club Gremio through Atletico Madrid and Nacional. Messi, on the other hand, left Barca the following year, first to PSG and then to US Major League Soccer (MLS) club Inter Miami. Suarez has been rumored to join the club since Messi moved to Miami, which is now true. It remains to be seen what success Messi-Suarez brings to the new pair.

However, Miami is paying special attention to pre-season preparations before the start of the new season. They have a bird's eye view of all possible titles this season. FC Dallas, Neymar's club Al Hilal, Cristiano Ronaldo's club Al Nasr, Hong Kong League team, Vissel Kobe and Messi's childhood club will play the pre-season Messi-Suarez Miami match.
