Inter Miami CF Signs Homegrown Shanyder Borgelin


-Inter Miami CF has announced today the signing of forward homegrown player Shanyer Boreglin with a contract running through the 2024 season with options for 2025 and 2026. Borgelin (21) is a Haitian-American academy product of Philadelphia Union before being transferred to Inter Miami CF II (reserve team) in February 2022. Borgelin also has 3 caps for the Haitian Senior National Team. During Borgelins' tenure at Inter Miami CF II, he had a breakout season where Boreglin had made 23 appearances, 15 of those starts, with 14g/4a. This transfer to Inter Miami was made possible by the trade of defender Damion Lowe to the Philadelphia Union earlier this off-season. A part of the trade was the transfer of the homegrown rights of Borgelin. Under the MLS roster rules and regulations, homegrown players do not count against the salary cap for a number of years after they sign for a clubs' senior team. This helps the club's already handicapped roster cap space due to sanctions placed by MLS due to the roster violations Inter Miami was found guilty of in 2020.

-Because Miami has made a clear indication of playing 2 strikers without wingers (for example: 4-4-2) Borgelin might have a difficult time getting significant 1st team minutes as Miami already has 7 natural Center-Forwards on the roster (Campana, Martinez, Coco Jean, Jake La Cava, Robinson, Lassiter, Stefanelli). I can definitely see Boreglin getting considerable minutes if Miami can make a good U.S. Open Cup run.
