The American club Inter Miami has just been fined for violating the transfer rules.
The Inter Miami franchise, which operates in MLS and is owned by English star David Beckham, will have to checkout and pay the sum of € 2m. The announcement comes from the American Football League which, after an in-depth investigation initiated two months ago into the club’s membership, ruled that several reinforcement operations were closed illegally, with unjustified payments.
Matuidi is not penalized
Among the players who were concerned by this investigation there is the French Blaise Matuidi. The former Parisian had benefited from advantageous salary conditions by being considered a “designated player”. However, this resulted in a surplus in the wages paid since the Mexican Rodolfo Pizarro and the Argentines Matias Pellegrini and Gonzalo Higuain were also in the same situation. Note, however, that the players in question did not receive any sanction.
The information was confirmed Friday through a statement from the League: “” The MLS has sanctioned Inter Miami who violated the directives in terms of salary conditions during the 2020 season, concerning Blaise Matuidi and Andres Reyes. A fine of 2 million dollars (1.6 million euros) is imposed on the club and another of 250,000 dollars (205,000 euros) 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 ”.
