MLS Moves: All the summer signings

Inter Miami signed Blaise Matuidi, a starter on the 2018 French World Cup championship team and a four-time Ligue 1 champion with Paris St. Germain and three-time Serie A champion with Juventus.

Inter Miami used Targeted Allocation Money to acquire the 33-year-old midfielder. Matuidi and Inter Miami co-owner David Beckham were teammates at PSG in 2013.

“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," said Beckham. "For me personally, to have a former teammate joining our Club is very special and I can’t wait to welcome him and his beautiful family to South Florida.”

Summer transfers took effect on Wednesday when the secondary window opened.
