The Argentine will arrive at Milan after acting for two seasons by Juventus. The Turin club paid € 90m (€ 322.5m) for Napoli in 2016. It was the third most expensive signing in Juventus’ history. The high value was paid because Higuain lived the peak of his rival’s career. Last season, he had beaten the Italian league record by swinging the net 36 times in the competition.
At Juventus, he was two-time Italian champion and two-time champion of the Italian Cup. In total, he scored 55 goals in 105 games. Higuaín changes his club now after a frustrating World Cup with Argentina. He started only one game as a starter, went through two other games and passed the competition in white.
