$50m vs $200k! How Luis Suarez Reunion with Lionel Messi at Inter Miami is Possible

Luis Suarez is reportedly set to earn just $200,000-per-year at Inter Miami, with that salary being dwarfed by Lionel Messi’s pay packet.

In order to reunite two former Barcelona team-mates in Florida, Inter Miami are having to find a way around MLS salary rules. Teams competing in America’s top tier are allowed to have three Designated Players (DP) on their books. These stars can be paid big money above the club’s salary cap.

At present, eight-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi, ex-Barca midfielder Sergio Busquets and Brazilian midfielder Gregore fill those spots at DRV PNK Stadium. Suarez would be expected to take on a similar standing if his proposed switch to the United States as a free agent goes through.
