Inter Miami, coming off a disappointing season, is actively working on strengthening their squad and making significant changes during the off-season to prepare for the upcoming MLS season in 2024. They managed just 9 wins and suffered 18 losses in their 34 league games, leaving no opportunity for playoff advancement.
