Last summer, Blaise Matuidi (33) landed free at Inter Miami from Juventus Turin. But this transfer was at the heart of a controversy. The Inter Miami club had violated MLS regulations by offering a salary well above the standards to Blaise Matuidi (34). The French midfielder was not classified among the three « designated players » of the workforce, in other words among the three players who can receive a salary beyond the salary cap.
For breaking this rule during the transfer of Matuidi and also during the transfer of Andres Reyes, David Beckham’s Inter Miami will have to pay a hefty fine of $ 2 million. “MLS has sanctioned Inter Miami for violating salary guidelines during the 2020 season, regarding Blaise Matuidi and Andres Reyes. A fine of two million dollars is imposed on the club and another of 250,000 dollars on the co-owner Jorge Mas. In addition, Paul McDonough, sporting director of Inter Miami at the time of the offenses committed, was suspended from all functions until the end of the 2022 season ”, can we read in the press release.
