MLS: Blaise Matuidi persona non grata at Inter Miami


The former PSG midfielder, who had been playing in Miami since the summer of 2020, is no longer in the odor of holiness in Florida. David Beck's Club

More really comfortable Blaise!

In any case, no longer at all in the odor of sanctity on the side of Inter Miami.

As proof, Blaise Matuidi was simply wiped off the map this week by leaders whose behavior leaves no doubt as to the future they wish to give to their collaboration with the Frenchman.

At the club, the 2018 world champion has completely disappeared from the radar, appearing neither on the list of registered players for the MLS season unveiled on Tuesday, nor on the club's website.

The former Parisian midfielder is however under contract with Inter until December 31, 2022. His contract even includes the possibility of extending the adventure a little further thanks to an optional third year.

An alternative to store in the radius of unrealizable fantasies as the chances of seeing the club and the player become friends again now belong to science fiction.

Matuidi continues to show up for training

This new episode of a soap opera already marked by a few hitches undoubtedly announces the end of the story between the Frenchman and the club partly owned by his former partner David Beckham.

Arrived in Miami in August 2020 from Juventus Turin, Matuidi had already seen his club fined $ 2 million by MLS last year for having paid him (like Colombian Andres Reyes) above the salary cap authorized by the League.

It is certainly his status as one of the three "designated players" in the squad which, like England international Ryan Shawcross and Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain, authorizes him to be paid beyond the ceilings, which could to have pushed the leaders of Miami to behave in this way with the Frenchman.

Whether they want to replace him or not, it's like an affront that Matuidi is going through this situation, which is all the more surprising as it becomes tied within the club of his former PSG team-mate David Beckham. He, who has never been in conflict with any of his employers, is indeed fired one year from the end of his contract. The news has certainly been in the air since The Sun revealed this possibility last October. But the player only officially became aware of it in the last few days.

Out of the question, however, to put himself at fault, Matuidi thus continues to show up for training while waiting to resolve the situation with his leaders.

But five days before the end of the winter transfer window, a return to France, to Troyes or Saint-Étienne, as rumor has already spread, seems complicated.

His children being educated in the United States and the dialogue for the time being rather difficult with his leaders, Matuidi has not yet left Miami.
