The Argentina international arrived in Miami last week, where he was greeted by Jorge Mas, one of the co-owners of Inter Miami, ahead of his move.

He joins the MLS side four years after joining Juventus from Napoli for a then-record Italian fee of £75 million. He spent three full seasons with Juve, while the 2018/19 season was spent on loan at AC Milan and then Chelsea.
The 32-year-old, who scored an impressive 66 goals in 148 matches for the Old Lady, was informed that he didn't have a future at the club shortly after Andrea Pirlo's appointment as manager in August.

Speaking about the signing of Higuain, Blaise Matuidi told Inter Miami's website: “We are very happy for Gonzalo. He’s a very good player who scores a lot of goals. He brings a lot of experience and will help the team to be better and better. I’ve known him for four years and I know what kind of player he is. You’ll see a good striker and an amazing football player and a good person.”
