He made his professional debut three years later, on 28 May 2017, in a 2–1 home win against San Lorenzo.

In the summer of 2018, he was signed by Serie A side Udinese. Throughout the season, Musso established himself as the undisputed starter and became one of the team's key players. In three seasons, he accumulated a total of 102 appearances in the league.[citation needed]

Musso was born in Argentina and is of Italian descent, and holds both passports.[3] He was part of the Argentina under-20 squad for the friendly tournament Four Nations match at La Serena, Chile in preparation for the 2013 South American Youth Football Championship.[citation needed]

He made his debut for the Argentina national football team on 26 March 2019 in a friendly against Morocco, as a 67th-minute substitute for Esteban Andrada.[4] On 14 June 2019, he received a late call-up for the 2019 Copa América to replace the injured Andrada.[5]
