Gonzalo Higuain is set for a move from Italian Champions Juventus to Beckham-owned MLS-side inter Miami according to Fabrizio Romano. The sports’ journo broke the news on his Twitter page in a tweet that had a picture of Gonzalo Higuain in Miami alongside one the owners of the club Jorge Mas.
After his move to Inter Miami is confirmed, Gonzalo Higuain will have put an end to a fruitful career on a Italian soil in which he represented Napoli, Juventus and AC Milan.
The Argentine started his career with his home club River Plate, before a transfer to Real Madrid in January 2007 for €12 million. His time in Spain saw him win several domestic honors, including three La Liga titles, and score 107 goals in 190 league appearances.
He joined Italian side Napoli for €40 million in July 2013, where he won the Coppa Italia during his first season. In the 2015–16 season, he scored 36 league goals, winning the Capocannoniere title and equalling Gino Rossetti’s 87-year-old record for goals in an Italian top-flight season.
As a result of his goal-scoring exploits in Naples, Italian champions Juventus signed him for €90 million in 2016, making him the most expensive South American footballer of all time until Neymar’s transfer to PSG in 2017 but is transfer fee was the highest ever paid by an Italian team until Juventus paid £100m for Cristiano Ronaldo. In 2018, he was loaned to A.C. Milan, and later to English side Chelsea in January 2019, where he won the UEFA Europa League, before returning to Juventus in the summer of that year, adding another Serie A title to his trophy cabinet the following season.
Now Higuain will become the second Juventus player to join Inter Miami following the arrival of Blaise Matuidi last month .
