Inter Miami transfer defender to Argentinian club
Inter Miami CF transferred 27-year-old defender Nicolás Figal to Argentina’s Club Atlético Boca Juniors on Monday.
Figal, who signed with Inter Miami during the club’s inaugural season, competed in 45 regular-season matches, tallying one goal and two assists over his tenure. In his two seasons, the center back started 44 matches for Inter Miami.
“We would like to thank Nico for his contributions to the club in its first two seasons and wish him well in his desired return to his home country,” chief soccer officer and sporting director Chris Henderson said in a media release. “This transaction gives us roster and salary cap flexibility ahead of our 2022 MLS campaign. We’re confident the team we’re building will help us achieve our goals moving forward.”
Returning to his home country, Figal previously spent five seasons with Club Atlético Independiente (2014-2019) and half a season with Club Olimpo (2015-2016).
Before transferring Figal, Inter Miami added new pieces to its backline, signing center backs Damion Lowe, Christopher McVey and Aimé Mabika this offseason.
