Gonzalo Higuain set to complete Inter Miami transfer as David Beckham lands big-name signing he craves

DAVID BECKHAM is on the verge of completing a huge transfer coup with Gonzalo Higuain set to sign for Inter Miami.

The 32-year-old’s contract at Juventus will be terminated, allowing him to move to the MLS side on a free.

SunSport understands it is already a done deal with the paperwork due to be signed within hours.

The striker is believed to be on his way to the US now after his agent already agreed personal terms.

All that remains is for the star himself to ink the contract that ties him to Inter until 2020.

Higuain has agreed to take a 50 per cent to escape from Juventus a year early.


That means he will pocket wages of around £3.7million annually.

The Argentinian was told by new boss Andrea Pirlo he did not feature in his plans at Juventus.

That allows him to move closer to his brother, Federico, who also plays in the MLS for DC United.

And there will also be a reunion with Blaise Matuidi at Inter Miami.

He was also allowed to terminate his Juve contract early to sign for Beckham’s newly-formed club.

Juventus forked out a whopping £75.3m to Napoli to sign him in 2016.

The South American went on to win three league titles and the Coppa Italia twice.

But he also spent time away after being shipped out on loan to both Milan and Chelsea two seasons ago.

Inter Miami fans have been desperate for their superstar co-owner to bring in a big name and although the likes of Suarez or Cristiano Ronaldo are way out of their reach right now, Higuain’s pedigree and CV will go down well.

Inter Miami bagged a vital win over Atlanta on Wednesday night thanks to a double from former Celtic winger Lewis Morgan but are second from bottom in the Eastern Conference with eight points from 10 games.
