Blaise Matuidi has already teamed up with David Beckham at PSG. Now it looks like he’ll be playing for the MLS club that the English icon owns.Matuidi, 2018 World Cup winner and veteran French midfielder, would travel to Inter Miami, according to Sky Sports’ Fabrizio Romano. Matuidi, 33, has a year to go with his contract with Juventus, but according to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri, Juventus are not asking for transfer fees and will welcome Matuidi’s salaries which will be taken off the books. Assuming he joins Inter Miami as a designated player, that would give the club their full allotment of three, following Matias Pellegrini and Rodolfo Pizarro.
Matuidi has made 35 appearances (23 starts) for Juventus is in Serie A this season, although he was an unused replacement for the club’s 2-1 Champions League win over Lyon on Friday, which ultimately sealed his elimination after a total of 2-2. draw for which Lyon held the tiebreaker away in the round of 16.
Matuidi has spent the last three seasons with Juventus, winning Serie A every year, after a long run in France with PSG, Saint-Etienne and Troyes. He has 84 caps with the French national team, representing Les Bleus in the last two World Cups and starting the final in 2018, when France won their first title in 20 years.
If the move is pushed past the finish line, it will bring weight and credibility to a midfielder who needs it. Inter Miami are the first club in MLS history to lose their first five games, and they were fired from the MLS Is Back tournament in Orlando with three 1-0 losses to Orlando City, the Philadelphia Union and the NYCFC .
