Italy Star Lorenzo Insigne Inks Four-year Major League Soccer Deal with Toronto

Italy international Lorenzo Insigne has signed a four-year deal to join Major League Soccer’s Toronto FC from Napoli on July 1, the Canadian club announced Saturday.

The 30-year-old forward and Napoli captain will move in the middle of the MLS season after his contract expires with the Serie A side in June. Insigne helped Italy win last year’s European Championship title, the Azzurri winning 3-2 in a penalty shootout over England.

“Lorenzo is a world-class attacking player in the prime of his career. He was a European champion with Italy and has performed on the biggest stages during his club career.

“Lorenzo has the talent to change games. He plays the game with joy and passion, and our fans and supporters are going to love watching him.”

Toronto missed last year’s playoffs after three runs to the MLS Cup Final in the prior five seasons,
lifting the trophy in 2017 with losses in 2016 and 2019.
