Inter Miami seals third signing, Venezuelan teenager Christian Makoun

TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Signing

Inter Miami CF have completed their third signing, adding Venezuelan youth international Christian Makoun Zamora FC of Venezuela’s First Division, the club announced Tuesday.

Makoun, 19, can play defensive mid or center back, captained the Venezuelan U-20 team and recently played for Juventus' U-23 team. He was on loan with the Italian giants, who opted not to sign the player permanently, thus returned to Venezuela, paving the way for Miami to sign the player. 

"We are happy to add a young player with solid experience both in Europe and South America to Inter Miami’s roster,” Inter Miami sporting director Paul McDonough said in a statement. “Christian is a grounded player of good character and maturity. He has shown us that he strives to represent himself and his home country at the highest level, and this is the mindset we want to build at Inter Miami.”   

Makoun is the club's third signing and the third highly-rated South American teenager to join, following Matias Pellegrini and Julian Carranaza last week. 

The club, entering MLS in 2020, are also set to soon hire a head coach. Exciting times in South Florida.
