Inter Miami CF has made a significant addition to its squad with the signing of promising Argentine defender, Tomás Avilés, as part of the MLS’ U-22 initiative. The 19-year-old centre-back joins the club from Racing Club in Argentina, and his contract will extend through the 2026 Major League Soccer (MLS) season with the option for renewal in 2027 and 2028. Pending the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) and P-1 Visa, Avilés will soon don the Inter Miami jersey.

Chris Henderson, Chief Football Officer, and Sporting Director of Inter Miami CF expressed delight in welcoming Tomás Avilés to the team, emphasizing the young talent’s bright future in the sport.

Hailing from Río Gallegos, Argentina, Avilés boasts international experience, having represented both Chile and Argentina at youth international levels. His talent caught the eye of national selectors, earning him a place in the Argentine U-20 team, where he started in two matches during the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup. Additionally, he showcased his skills for Chile’s U-20s, playing in three matches during the 2023 CONMEBOL U-20 South American Championship.

Tomás Avilés’ signing marks a significant step for both the player and Inter Miami CF. His youth, talent, and international experience make him a promising addition to the club’s roster, and fans eagerly await his contributions to the team’s success in the MLS.
