TORONTO (AP) – Canadian football club Toronto FC has signed Italian striker Lorenzo Insigne. The Major League Soccer club announced that the European champion has signed an initial contract that says he will play with the Canadians for four years from July 2022.
The 30-year-old is still playing the current season in Serie A at SSC Napoli and is leaving the Southern Italians when his contract expires. In 2009 he started his professional career in Naples. The club awarded it several times between 2010 and 2012, but then returned to the southern Italian city. According to media reports, club president Aurelio De Laurentiis Insignes did not comply with the contract. “This is a historic and exciting day for our club,” said Toronto club president Bill Manning. “Lorenzo is a world-class attacker at the height of his career.”
