Gonzalo Higuain Moves To Juventus

Serie A giants, Juventus have signed Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain on a 5 year deal for a massive £75.3 million pounds ($132 million dollars) .

Napoli put a buy-out clause of 90 million euros in which Juventus matched to make it the third biggest transfer fee of all time behind Cristiano Ronaldo (£80m) and Gareth Bale (£85m) when they both moved to Real Madrid.

Higuain came off an amazing Serie A season as he scored 36 goals in just 35 games to help Napoli finish 2nd in the league.

The Argentine striker was at Real Madrid from 2007-13 until he joined Napoli and proved to be a goal scoring machine on plenty occasions. An excellent front man with great goal poaching ability who was able to score headers and both feet which made him an opposing threat to his opposition.

It is a lot of money to spend on him but his goal scoring record last season speaks volumes of what he is capable of. The likely opportunity of winning the league title and Champions League probably enticed the 28 year old to Juventus.

Higuan’s success has been due to playing alone up front but with fellow Argentine, Paulo Dybala playing well last season and Juventus usually play 2 up front, Higuain will have to adjust his game slightly. Juventus will be doing their best to make sure both Higuain and Dybala can combine up front and continue to score plenty of goals for the Old Ladies next season.
