Inter Miami has crossed the age barrier with some recent signings. But, if rumors are true, there may be some youth in the mix after all.

Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number For Inter Miami

In reality, despite the recent bout of aging stars the club has picked up, Inter Miami remains one of the youngest Major League Soccer sides.

Portland Timbers take the trophy for the oldest with an average age of 27.4 years while New York Red Bulls has a claim on the youngest at 22.8 years.

Inter Miami is right there with FC Cincinnati, Orlando City SC and Philadelphia Union at around 25 years.

That’s even after adding in Alba (34 years old), Busquets (35 years old), Messi (36 years old) and Suarez (36 years old).

We tend to forget that, in addition to the Barcelona foursome, Inter Miami has invested in some youth by adding Facundo Farias (21 years old) and Tomas Aviles (19 years old) during the July transfer window.

And don’t forget about the fact that attacker Benjamin Cremaschi is only 18 years old and Leonardo Campana is just 23.

So, if you break it down, Inter Miami’s squad isn’t nearly as old as you might think.

It’s just that because we signed aging headline players, that draws the most attention. Inter Miami hasn’t completely passed on younger players in lieu of experience to win a title.

There is a good amount of investment in the youth side of the equation.

And, if rumors are to be believed, there is more youth coming.
