The Argentina international has signed a four-year contract with the Serie A champions worth £6.3m per season and will become the third most expensive player of all time.

Higuain passed a medical in Madrid on Friday after Juventus agreed to pay the 28-year-old’s full release clause – a record transfer fee for the Serie A.

He becomes manager Massimiliano Allegri’s fifth signing of the summer following the acquisitions of Miralem Pjanic, Dani Alves, Medhi Benatia and Marko Pjaca.
