Gonzalo Higuain agrees to join Juventus from Napoli for £79m

Gonzalo Higuain has agreed to join Juventus from Napoli for £79m, according to a report.
Sky Sport Italia claim the Argentine has already undergone a Juventus medical and the Serie A champions will pay the huge buyout clause.

The extraordinary suggestion this morning is that he had his medical in Madrid yesterday.

He is due to put pen to paper on a contract until June 2020.

The wages on offer are believed to be £6.2m per year, shattering their current salary cap.

The Corriere della Sera newspaper had also reported that Higuain rented an apartment in Turin, promising to include two Juventus season tickets for the landlord.

The 28-year-old is expected at Napoli’s pre-season training camp in Dimaro on Monday.
