“We’re pleased to bring in attacking midfielder Matías Rojas,” Inter Miami chief soccer officer and sporting director Chris Henderson said in a press release.

“He is a skillful and experienced player at both the club and national team levels whose versatility we believe will be an asset for the team.

“We think this addition helps strengthen our squad as we aim to compete for titles after a strong start of the MLS season.”

Rojas has 37 goals and added 18 assists in 205 club-career matches and predominantly played at Argentine side Racing Club.

However, he’s also spent time at boyhood club Cerro Porteno, Lanus, Defensa y Justicia and Corinthians.

Internationally, Rojas has scored once in 18 appearances for Paraguay and remains part of their current squad looking to qualify for the 2026 World Cup.

Speaking about the move to Miami, Rojas told reporters: “I’m happy, joining a spectacular club like Inter Miami is a dream come true

“I’m excited to compete and help my teammates achieve the team’s objectives.”

Rojas’ much-anticipated switch was completed just before the Primary Transfer Window closed on April 23.

He gives boss Tata Martino another attacking option and can play out wide as well as centrally.

Meanwhile, Inter are also closing in on a Argentina youngster Giovanni Ferraina on a loan deal with a buy option.
