Inter Miami have confirmed the signing of former Barcelona star Jordi Alba as the left-back reunites with Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets in the MLS.
The Spain international left the Catalan side at the end of last season and it allowed Miami to pick him up on a free transfer. The 34-year-old has agreed a one-year deal with the MLS franchise as they look to build a team to win titles around Messi having experienced a horrendous campaign so far this season.
Alba will link up with former Barcelona teammates Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets who were unveiled as Inter Miami players on Sunday. The duo took part in their first training session in Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday and are expected to make their debut against Cruz Azul this Friday.
