The Brampton native’s professional career began with the New England Revolution, who drafted him in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft. In his two years in Massachusetts, he scored 12 goals and assisted 11 more in 67 appearances.

Buchanan’s international debut for Canada came in June 2021 and he played a key role in the country’s 2021 Gold Cup campaign, where they reached the semi-finals.

His performances earned him a move to Club Brugge in January 2022, where he was part of their 2021-22 title-winning team. Buchanan made 67 appearances for the club in his two years there, including six in the Champions League.

The winger was a pillar in Canada’s successful qualification campaign for the 2022 World Cup and started all three matches of the tournament for his country.

“A very long journey that began in Brampton and has taken him to Milan: that of Tajon Nerazzurri The dream is just beginning,” Inter said in their statement.
