Sources confirm Inter Miami are Interested in bringing Charlotte FC defender Christian Makoun back with the Venezuelan international not being opposed to making a return to Miami, a team who he saw regular team action last season with over 20 MLS starts. Makoun had previously removed all of his Charlotte FC posts on his Instagram account.
However earlier Wednesday afternoon he posted his Charlotte FC photos back and posted an Instagram story saying "Relax Guys" .
His minutes have been limited, recently, with both regular starting CB spots being taken by Guzman Corujo and Anton Walkes. CB is one of Charlotte’s deepest positions as they also have Jan Sobocinski and Christian Fuchs available. Fuchs has been playing left back of late, but could be rotated back to CB if Corujo or Walkes were injured. With this much depth and minutes being hard to come by for Makoun, a transfer could make sense for both parties involved.
The Venezuelan international was traded to Charlotte FC from Inter Miami in January of this year, for their number one spot in the MLS Allocation Order. Makoun has made twelve appearances with eight starts for the Black and Blues so far in the club’s inaugural season. Makoun also had two starts for the Venezuelan National Team this year during World Cup Qualifiers.
It is yet to be seen if Inter Miami will look to work out a deal with Charlotte FC to acquire Makoun back but one thing is for sure, Interest for the Venezuelan from the Florida team is there.
