In an interview with ESPN, the former forward of the Argentine team referred to the possible arrival of Messi to MLS. “Henry came after being world champion, Pirlo too, Villa the same. I don't see why Messi, if he wishes, cannot come here, the league has received great stars. I also think he still has a lot to give in Europe", said the former Juventus.

On the other hand, the ‘Pipita’ referred to the present of the Major League Soccer itself, where he enjoys a good present in Inter Miami. “It is a very young league and competes against others that have a hundred years of history.

In this sense, Gonzalo Higuaín spoke about his new club and his relationship with David Beckham, owner of the MLS franchise. "Beckham is at the club every day. We respect each other and love each other very much. His presence motivated me to come", he highlighted about the work of the former English footballer.

Finally, he talked about his relationship with Diego Maradona

Finally, the former Real Madrid remembered Diego Armando Maradona, who was the first coach who brought him to the Argentine National Team in 2008. “Diego gave me the greatest possibility a player can have: to go and play World Cup. I will be grateful for the rest of life with Maradona", concluded the forward.
