During three seasons with Napoli, Higuain scored 91 goals on all fronts.

Higuain came to Juventus after setting a Serie A scoring record with 36 goals scored for Napoli, breaking the old record set by Swedish legend Gunnar Nordalh 66 years ago – scoring 35 goals for AC Milan in the 1949 season.

However, despite Higuain’s goal-scoring talent, Napoli could still only finish second, 9 points behind Juventus.

With the transfer to Juventus, Higuain brought Napoli a huge profit, because three years ago, they only spent 44 million dollars to buy him to Real Madrid.

Spending $99 million to buy Higuain, Juventus will have to quickly sell Paul Pogba to balance their finances.
