Gonzalo Higuaín to take sabbatical

Inter Miami forward Gonzalo Higuain plans to take a sabbatical following the end of his contract with the MLS expansion team, revealing he wants a break from football and ‘everything’.

The Argentine striker signed with Inter Miami in 2020 as a Designated Player for the club’s debut season. He joined from Serie A giants Juventus after playing all around Europe with Real Madrid, Chelsea, Milan and Napoli. 

However, Higuain has confirmed he plans to take a break from football more than 16 years after his first professional appearance on 29 May, 2005. 

“I have one year left in my contract with Inter Miami, at the end of the deal I will take a sabbatical, taking a break from football and everything,” he told ESPN 360.

The forward has made 30 appearances for Inter Miami, scoring ten goals and providing seven assists in all competitions. He propelled the team to a playoff run during their first season in the American league.
