He will probably not be the only one moved by this departure. With six seasons at Real Madrid, three under the Napoli colors and as many at Juventus, the Brest native will make his mark on football history. That of an impressive centre-forward at club and Argentina selection.

A nice track record
At Real Madrid (2006-2013), the center forward began to forge his record with three Spanish championship titles (2007, 2008, 2012).
In Naples, where he won only the Italian Super Cup, he excelled particularly at individual level, finishing as Serie A top scorer in 2015-2016. His 36 goals in 35 games remains the record for a season that then ended in 2019-2020 at Ciro Immobile was achieved with Lazio. He then became Italian champion three times (2017, 2018, 2020) and Champions League finalist (2017) with Juventus Turin.
Higuain still lifted one European trophy, that of the Europa League, with Chelsea in 2019, even if he played just one game this season. After all, he has scored 27 goals in 67 games in the last three years in David Beckham’s co-owning team without inflating his record.
