Inter Miami have signed Argentina international striker Gonzalo Higuain following his release from Juventus.

The 32-year-old had his contract terminated by the Serie A champions on Thursday in order to move to the Major League Soccer outfit, who are co-owned by former England captain David Beckham.

The length of Higuain's contract remains undisclosed but he will join former Juventus team-mate Blaise Matuidi in Fort Lauderdale.

He told the club's official website: "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.

"My goal is to try to transmit all the experience I acquired in Europe and to help the team grow."

Inter Miami sporting director Paul McDonough added: "We are pleased to close a deal with Gonzalo and add an experienced and successful goalscorer, who has excelled in the world's best teams and leagues.

"Our ownership group has always said our goal is to not only bring elite players to Inter Miami, but also good people that share our ambition and aspiration of making history in North American futbol, and we're confident we have found that in Gonzalo."
