Gonzalo Higuain is following a former teammate to Major League Soccer.

The veteran striker agreed to terminate his contract with Juventus and has come to terms on a deal with Inter Miami, according to Fabrizio Romano of The Guardian.

An official announcement is expected shortly.

In making the switch to David Beckham's MLS franchise, Higuain will reunite with Blaise Matuidi, who made the same move from Turin to Fort Lauderdale on a free transfer earlier this summer.

New Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo made it clear early in his tenure that Higuain, 32, wasn't in his plans heading into the new campaign. The club and player then began negotiations to find a solution for his future.

The Argentine scored 40 league goals in his first two seasons with Juventus after joining the club from Napoli for €90 million in 2016. He then spent loan spells at AC Milan and Chelsea before returning to northern Italy this past season, finding the net eight times in 32 Serie A appearances.

He'll likely occupy a Designated Player slot with Inter Miami, who signed Matuidi without using their final DP roster spot.

Higuain's move means he may get a chance to play against his older brother Federico, who's in his first season with D.C. United after a celebrated spell with Columbus.
