It was thought Giovinco could move to either Spurs or Arsenal, but Toronto have agreed to pay him THREE TIMES his salary in Italy in order to lure him to the US.
The Canadian side will not have to pay a fee, with Giovinco’s contract expiring in the summer. He has made 21 appearances for Italy and 131 for Juventus.
It is being hailed as a major moment in MLS history, being the first time a player supposedly in his peak has signed from a major European club.
Toronto confirmed the transfer via their official Twitter account a couple of hours ago:
