Spanish defender Jordi Alba has officially signed with American team Inter Miami, the North American Football Championship (MLS) club announced on Thursday.
The 34-year-old Spanish international will find two of his former FC Barcelona teammates at Inter Miami, namely Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets.
The left-back’s contract with Inter Miami runs for a year and a half, until the 2024 season, with an optional year.
“Jordi is an accomplished, dynamic and experienced player whom we are delighted to acquire to continue to strengthen our team”, underlined the sporting director of the American club, Chris Henderson.
“He has proven for over a decade that he is one of the best full-backs in football due to both his defensive solidity and his ability to contribute in attack,” he added.
With Barça, Alba won La Liga six times, the Champions League, a Club World Cup and the Copa del Rey seven times.
