Gonzalo Higuaín: 'Messi playing in MLS, why not...'
The Argentine striker is entering his third year in Major League Soccer with Inter Miami CF and he talked about how lucrative this league has become.
Gonzalo Higuaín was not happy in his last few seasons in Europe, but now he has found the ‘inner tranquility’ he was lacking. The Argentine striker has been emotionally happy since arriving to Inter Miami in 2020 and he is currently entering his third year in Major League Soccer.
The 34-year-old spent 13 seasons in the biggest clubs in Europe such as Real Madrid, Napoli, Juventus, AC Milan and Chelsea. Higuaín arrived to MLS in September 2020 and since then he has scored 13 goals in 40 appearances across all competitions and during an interview with Argentine publication Olé he talked about his time in the league.
"Everyone wants to come to the MLS"
"I found the emotional and inner tranquility that I had been looking for for a long time. I came out of that European vortex. I didn't think I would have found myself so well," said Gonzalo Higuaín. "I wanted to go back to the sensations I had with amateurism, like when I played in the lower leagues. Here there is not that mistrust, that envy," the Inter Miami striker added.
Higuaín on Neymar and Messi coming to MLS
“Neymar said he wants to play here and everyone wants to come to the MLS. A player like him would like the tranquility, there is less criticism and he could live in peace. That is how I felt coming here at least,” added the Argentine striker.
"Leo Messi is still one of the best players in the world, his skills have not diminished. Can it happen? Look, we’ll push. I’m an optimist at heart. Could I see that happening? It’s a possibility. The decision is up to him [Messi], but don’t see why not,” added Higuaín during an interview with the Miami Herald.
