Inter Miami complete the signing of Gonzalo Higuain

Inter Miami have completed the signing of former Real Madrid and Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain.

The 32-year-old heads to the United States after recently rescinding his contract with Juventus.

Higuain will wear the number 9 shirt at Miami and has joined as a Designated Player.

In his first interview with the MLS club, Higuain said he is looking forward to the new challenge.

“First of all, I want to thank Inter Miami for the effort it has made to sign me,” said Higuain. “I think it will be a beautiful experience in my life. It’s what I was looking for – a new experience, a new league and a beautiful city. I’m really happy to be here and that it’s official

“My goal is to try to transmit all the experience I acquired in Europe and to help the team grow.

“I feel good, I feel whole as a player. I’m motivated to try a new league and help the team grow.

“Individually, my goal is to demonstrate that I can contribute and continue playing great fútbol here, and I hope I can achieve that because I have all the tools necessary to succeed.

“Inter Miami is a team in construction but there is already a good base to reach important goals.”

One of the most prolific strikers in the world over the past decade, Higuain spent six-and-a-half seasons with Real Madrid before moving to Napoli in 2013.

After 91 goals in 146 appearances for Napoli, he made a controversial €90m switch to Juventus in the summer of 2016.

Higuain won three Serie A titles with Juventus and also played for AC Milan and Chelsea on loan.

He retired from national team duty with Argentina in 2019 after scoring 31 goals in 71 appearances.
