French midfielder Blaise Matuidi is no longer a Juventus player as he has officially left the club for the Major League Soccer.
The Serie A giants confirmed the departure of the 33-year old who is set to sign for Inter Miami in the US.
Matuidi is a veteran midfielder for France and was part of the side that won the World Cup in 2018.
He still had one year left in his contract although his career with The Old Lady fizzled out last season.

Juventus, on their official website, hailed the midfielder as they wished him well in future.
"With our colours on his back, he fought and played his heart out in every single game; placing constant pressure on the opponents, tearing apart the run of play and ever so eloquently relaunching the ball into action After three years and five titles won (three Scudetti, one Coppa Italia and one Italian Super Cup), Blaise Matuidi and Juventus say goodbye with the consensual termination of the player’s contract,” Juventus said in a club statement on their website.
Notably he will link up with David Beckham, who is the owner of Inter Miami.
Matuidi leaves Juventus having won three Scudetto, one Coppa Italia and a Supercoppa Italiana.
He only joined Juventus in 2017 after a lengthy spell with French giants PSG and will now be looking to take his talents to the US with Inter Miami struggling for form.
In his latter months at Juventus, however, he only managed 23 starts this season and was an unused substitute in Juventus’ 2-1 win over Lyon in the Champions League.
