Jordi Alba is close to joining his former Barcelona teammates Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets at Inter Miami CF, the MLS club's co-owner Jorge Mas said Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the club is trying to reach a deal with a fourth former Spotify Camp Nou teammate, Grêmio striker Luis Suárez, as Suárez and the Brazilian side haggle over an exit fee, sources told ESPN.

"We're going to sign Alba today," Mas told reporters after Miami's training session in Ft. Lauderdale. "I know that [manager] Tata [Martino] is counting on him for the second half of the Cup."

Earlier, sources told ESPN that the left-back, 34, was in the final stages of talks with the club.
