Gonzalo Higuain would be considering to retire from soccer at the end of the year. The Argentine striker's contract with Inter Miami runs out on December 31, 2022 and he might not be interested in playing beyond that date, according to his father Jorge.

Talking to Argentine TV channel TNT Sports, Jorge Higuain - who has also played professional soccer for the likes of Boca Juniors, River Plate, San Lorenzo, among others - revealed that his son told him he's not planning to play next year.

"No, he's retiring when this year ends - at least that's what he told me," Jorge Higuain said when asked about a potential return of Gonzalo to the Argentine league, where he began his career at River Plate.
