French midfielder Blaise Matuidi has officially signed for Inter Miami on a free transfe, the Major League Soccer (MLS) club announced on Thursday.

Matuidi left Juventus after his contract with the Italian champions was terminated on Wednesday by mutual agreement.

The 33-year-old will now be reunited with former Paris St Germain team mate David Beckham, who is co-owner of Inter Miami.

“I couldn’t be happier to welcome my friend Blaise to Inter Miami. He is an exciting and gifted player and a great person,” former England skipper Beckham said in a club statement

“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.”

Matuidi made 45 appearances for Juve across all competitions last season as they won the Serie A title for a ninth straight season.

Capped 84 times, Matuidi was part of the 2018 World Cup squad and played in the final when France beat Croatia 4-2.

He also made over 150 appearances for St Etienne from 2007-2011 before moving to PSG where he won four Ligue 1 titles.

Inter Miami resume their inaugural season in the MLS on Aug. 22 against Orlando City.
