The Spain international would be a marquee signing for the team as well as a big name for the league. 

He’s won both the World Cup and European Championships with his country and played a pivotal role in Barcelona’s success since 2008.

Busquets, with 685 Barca appearances to his name, has won LaLiga eight times, the Copa del Rey seven times, the Spanish Super Cup eight times and lifted the Champions League on three occasions. 

The central midfielder reportedly could opt to remain at the Nou Camp for one more year following the conclusion to his current deal. 

He has made five appearances this season and captained the side in their 2-0 group defeat by Bayern Munich in Europe. 

Inter Miami have struggled for consistency this season and currently sit in a playoff spot in seventh in the MLS Eastern Conference.
