Inter Miami sign Argentina ace Redondo

Inter Miami completed the signing of midfielder Federico Redondo on a four-year contract with a club option for the 2028 season as well. 

Redondo - the son of Fernando Redondo, who played for Real Madrid, AC Milan and Argentina's national team - is signing as a U22 Initiative player and as a season-ending injury replacement for Facundo Farias.  

"We're pleased to bring an exciting young midfielder like Federico to Inter Miami," team sporting director and chief soccer officer Chris Henderson said. 

"He's a very promising player who is sharp with the ball at his feet, and shows awareness out of possession. We believe in his potential, but also feel he will immediately be a strong addition to our squad as we look to build on our successes in 2024."

Redondo, 21, comes to Inter Miami from Argentinos Juniors. He has represented Argentina at the U20 and U23 levels, and now gets to play with Argentina captain Lionel Messi. 

"I'm very happy to join a club that is growing so much," Redondo said. "It's a great opportunity to share the pitch with top players."
