Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain has signed with MLS new boys Inter Miami the football club owned by former Manchester United winger David Beckham. His signing was announced today Friday 18 September 2020, a day after leaving the Serie A champion Juventus.
Gonzalo Higuain striker joins his former Juve teamate Blaise Matuidi at Inter Miami and he is set to play in the same league as his older brother Federico, a rival at D.C United.
“Individually, my goal is to demonstrate that I can contribute and continue playing great football here,” Argentine Higuain said. “I hope I can achieve that because I have all the tools necessary to succeed.”
“I want to thank Inter Miami for the effort it has made to sign me,” added Gonzalo 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.”
Anything would help the Miami, who are bottom of the overall table with two wins and two drawn in 11 matches. They have managed only nine goals and their 0-5 start was the worst for any first-year MLS club.
Higuain’s Inter Miami debut is expected on September 23 when the New York Red Bulls visit South Florida.
