A move to the MLS could be on the horizon for Higuain amid reports the Juventus outcast is in advanced talks with Inter Miami.
Gonzalo Higuain may be under contract until next year, but Andrea Pirlo has already confirmed the striker is out of his plans for his first season as Juventus manager. Therefore, Inter Miami are ready to bounce.
The American outfit, owned by David Beckham among other prominent figures, have lost five of their opening six games in the Major League Soccer (MLS) and could do with some extra firepower.
It’s led to talk of a surprise scoop for Higuain, with FIFA.com reporter Abdellah Boulma claiming the 32-year-old is in advanced talks over an Inter Miami move.
L’attaquant Gonzalo #Higuain (32 ans, 149 matches, 66 b) en fin de contrat en 2021 avec la #Juventus, courtisé par plusieurs écuries (Angleterre, et championnats exotiques) et dont #Pirlo a récemment officialisé le départ, est en discussion avancée avec l’#InterMiamiCF

Aston Villa, Fulham, West Ham, and Newcastle United have reportedly expressed an interest in him recently as well. While a move to another non-European league cannot be discounted either.
LA Galaxy and D.C. United are also interested in bringing Higuain, who has scored over 300 club goals in his career, over to the MLS.
But it appears Inter Miami are favorites in a move that would see ‘Pipita’ reunite with former Juventus teammate Blaise Matuidi in the United States.
