Inter Miami CF Exercises Offseason Buyout on Matías Pellegrini
Inter Miami CF announced today that it has exercised its one offseason buyout on Matías Pellegrini's MLS contract ahead of today's Roster Compliance Deadline.
Pellegrini has joined Fort Lauderdale CF, the Club's USL League One side, on loan and will not be eligible to compete on the team's 2021 MLS roster.
Inter Miami's three Designated Players for the 2021 season are Gonzalo Higuaín, Blaise Matuidi, and Rodolfo Pizarro.
"We've been working with Matías, his representatives and MLS to reach an agreement, and at this time we believe this is the best option for all parties," said Chris Henderson, Inter Miami CF's Chief Soccer Officer and Sporting Director. "Matías is a talented young player with an exciting career ahead. He will remain with the organization as we work on finding an on-field opportunity and next steps for him."
Pellegrini, 21, made history by becoming one of Inter Miami's first two signings in July 2019 when he joined the team from Argentine top-tier side Club Estudiantes de La Plata. The Argentina youth international made 20 appearances in Inter Miami's inaugural campaign, 19 coming in the regular season and one in the playoffs, starting 12 times and registering a goal and four assists.
