Gonzalo Higuain Becomes The Highest Paid Player In The MLS After Joining Inter Miami

By Mike Parrott

Gonzalo Higuain has become the highest paid player in the MLS after joining Inter Milan as a free-agent. Higuain's contract was terminated by Juventus earlier this week.

David Beckham's MLS side, Inter Miami, don't seem to be afraid of spending the cash to become one of the top teams in the USA.

This comes after signing Gonzalo Higuain as a free-agent, becoming Miami's third designated player.

With Juventus terminating the contract of Higuain, the Argentine won't have to fear about living from pay-cheque to pay-cheque though.

The Argentine is set to make $7 million-a-year at his new club in the United States which is the equivalent of just over $130,000-a-week.

"First of all, I want to thank Inter Miami for the effort it has made to sign me," Higuain said in a video released by the team.

"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 goals are to grow the team, be able to compete and help the club grow with my experience that I've gained in Europe after so many years," he said.

"I think there's a good base and good pieces to be able to do big things. I hope I can contribute and that the team can gain more confidence and earn positive results."

Higuain joins his former teammate Blaise Matuidi at Miami, becoming the only pair currently in the MLS to have played in World Cup finals.

Inter Miami's record is 2-7-2 and the team has scored just nine goals in 11 matches, tied for second-lowest in MLS.
