Juventus confirm termination of Gonzalo Higuain’s contract

After 7 years in Serie A, 3 Scudetti, 3 Coppa Italia, an Italian Super Cup, 125 goals, and setting the highest ever goal scoring record in the top flight with 36 goals, Gonzalo Higuain’s chapter in Italy and Juventus comes to a close.

“Juventus FC announces the mutual termination of the contract with the player Gonzalo Gerardo Higuain,” read a statement on the club’s website.

“This operation generates a negative economic effect of approximately €18.3 million on the 2019/2020 financial year due to the residual value write-down of the registration rights of the player.

“Gonzalo’s adventure at Juve began in the summer of 2016, with a great impact: he was the best scorer and most utilised player in a season that ended with the conquest of the Scudetto and the Italian Cup, a cup double which was repeated the following year.

“And since his debut, dated 20 August 2016, Higuain is Juventus’ second-best scorer in all competitions, as well as the sixth best scorer in the Champions League.

“Now it’s time to say goodbye: thanks for everything, Pipa! And good luck for your future.”
