Inter Miami have signed Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain on a free transfer after he left Italian champion Juventus, the Major League Soccer club announced Friday.

Higuain, 32, will join the MLS side owned by David Beckham as a designated player, joining compatriot Matias Pellegrini and Mexican midfielder Rodolfo Pizarro as the team’s highest-paid squad members.

Nicknamed “the Beckham Rule”, the designated player option allows MLS teams to sign up to three players outside their salary cap.

Earlier Friday, Serie A champion Juve announced they had terminated Higuain’s contract by mutual consent.

Former Real Madrid striker Higuain, who joined Juve in 2016 after a three-year stint with Napoli, scored 66 goals in 149 games in all competition for the league champion.

Higuain follows former Juve team mate Blaise Matuidi in Miami, and he will also be playing in the same league as his older brother, Federico Higuain, who plays for DC United.
