“First of all, I want to thank Inter Miami for the effort it has made to sign me. 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,” said Higuain.

“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.

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

The 32-year-old had spells with Real Madrid, Napoli, Juventus and loan spells with Chelsea and AC Milan.

He won three league titles with Los Blancos and scored a record breaking 35 Serie A goals during his spell with Napoli.

Higuain won the Coppa Italia with the Naples side and enjoyed three Serie A trophies with the Bianconeri.

The former Argentina international will be a good addition to Inter Miami's squad that have struggled to score goal this season.
