Considered by many to be one of the best players in MLS, Mihalovic will head to the Netherlands in 2023, joining the AZ Alkmaar team.
Rumors say that the Impact fetched up to 6M Euros in this transfer. But this information has not been confirmed by the club.

The American said he was relieved to have settled this file, and now hopes to leave Montreal by lifting the cup in November.
According to some Dutch journalists, if CF Montreal’s season ends quickly in the fall and Mihailovic is not selected to go to the World Cup, he could join his new team this fall.
