Juventus have released a statement to confirm Gonzalo Higuain’s time in Turin is up and have paid £17million to cancel his contract.
It read: “There were many battles together, many goals scored, with many often decisive.
“Now the paths of Gonzalo Higuain and Juventus go their separate ways.
“Pipita, after winning his third Scudetto, has officially taken off his Black and White shirt.
Higuain’s contract with Juventus was not set to expire until 2021.
But Andrea Pirlo told the striker that he did not feature in his plans.
The club’s statement confirmed: “Juventus Football Club announces the mutual termination of the contract with the player Gonzalo Gerardo Higuain.
“This operation generates a negative economic effect of approximately €18.3m on the 2019/20 financial year due to the residual value write-down of the registration rights of the player.”
The 32-year-old forward is now set to join David Beckham’s new side Inter Miami on a free transfer – which will make him the highest-paid player in the MLS.
The Argentine ace is already in America to finalise his move to Inter Miami.
