In the second half of Inter Miami’s 1-0 victory over D.C. United on Saturday, Freire sustained an injury.

The veteran defender played in 10 games (nine starts) for Inter Miami after joining on a season-long loan from Liga MX team Pumas UNAM in January.

In Freire’s absence, Tomás Avilés and Sergii Kryvtsov are anticipated to be the team’s starting center-back duo by head coach Tata Martino. In the event that Inter Miami wishes to bolster their team, the Secondary Transfer Window is open from July 18 until August 14.

In 2024, Freire becomes the second Inter Miami player after Facundo Farías to sustain a season-long knee injury. Diego Gómez and Federico Redondo, two midfielders, have also been out for extended periods of time, but they should return shortly.

Up until Matchday 15, Inter Miami led the Supporters’ Shield race despite suffering yet another injury setback. They have 31 points (9W-2L-4D) and a league-high 36 goals scored.
