Blaise Matuidi ends his Juventus contract one-year earlier to join David Beckham’s Inter Miami on a free transfer

Blaise Matuidi has been a constant figure in the Juventus midfield for the last three years. His tireless work ethic and tremendous reliability along with an increasing hunger to get forward and provide a genuine offensive threat made him a vital cog in the Juventus team.

The 2018 World Cup winner joined Juventus from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 for an initial transfer fee of around €20 million. He has spent 3 seasons at Turin winning the Serie A in each season. He also won one Coppa Italia and one Supercoppa Italiana.

Matuidi has played 133 games in all competitions for Juventus, which is the second-highest among all the other player at the club since his arrival. Only Paulo Dybala has played one more match than him. The French international has scored eight goals and provided five assists in his three seasons at the club.

Blaise Matuidi has now terminated his contract with Juventus on a consensual basis. His contract was due to end in 2021 but he has opted to end his Juventus career one-year earlier. The 33-year old has done this to join David Beckham’s MLS side Inter Miami on a free transfer.

Inter Miami is having a bad campaign. They have lost all six of their league fixtures since joining the competition at the start of this season. Beckham will now hope that Matuidi can somehow turn the fortune of the whole team and lead them back to winning ways.

Matuidi wrote on Twitter: “I made my decision a few weeks ago to join Inter Miami CF, rise to my friend David Beckham’s challenge and win new trophies there. My family and I can’t wait.”

David Beckham told the club’s website: “I couldn’t be happier to welcome my friend Blaise to Inter Miami. He is an exciting and gifted player and a great person.”

“To have a World Cup winner of Blaise’s quality in our new team is such a proud moment – for us as owners and for our fans. For me personally, to have a former team-mate joining our club is very special and I can’t wait to welcome him and his beautiful family to South Florida.”

Blaise Matuidi’s transfer to Inter Miami was confirmed on Thursday. He will be able to play his first match for Inter Miami at their home, Inter Miami CF Stadium on 22nd August. Matuidi will wear the No. 8 shirt at Inter Miami.
