US Major League Soccer (MLS) team Inter Miami snatched up Argentinian football star Gonzalo Higuain on Friday.

“My goal is to try to transmit all the experience I acquired in Europe and to help the team grow,” Higuain said in a statement.

“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 football here, and I hope I can achieve that because I have all the tools necessary to succeed,” he added.

On Thursday, Higuain’s contract with Italy’s Juventus was terminated with mutual consent.

During his career, Higuain has played for England’s Chelsea, Spain’s Real Madrid, and Italian sides Juventus and Napoli.

The 32-year-old scored 66 goals in 149 matches for Juventus and helped the team win three Serie A titles.

He also claimed the Europa League title with Chelsea in 2019.

Meanwhile, English football legend David Beckham, one of Inter Miami’s owners, welcomed Higuain on social media, saying: “Another big day in Miami bringing a winner to the family… Welcome Gonzalo to our family Inter Miami CF.”
