A third highest move in history and the most expensive domestic transfer of all time has been recorded in Italy after Gonzalo Higuain joined the Turin side, Juventus on a five year contract. 

The Argentinian who was also linked with a move to Arsenal has signed with Juventus after the club met its buy-out clause of £75.3 million which will be paid in two instalments.

The 28 year old striker joined Napoli from Real Madrid in 2013 for £34.5 million.

During the 2015-2016, Gonzalo Higuain scored 36 goals and he earned a Serie A golden boot accolade with Napoli. He had also scored 91 goals and 26 assists with the Partenopei in 146 appearances over three years.

According to the statistics, the previous domestic transfer was recorded in January 2011 when the Spanish striker Fernando Torres moved to Chelsea at a transfer deal worth £50 million.

The £75.3 million deal for the striker is only dwarfed by those deals paid by the Galacticos, Real Madrid who captured signatures of Gareth Bale for £85 million and Christiano Ronaldo for £80 million respectively.

Higuain will now replace Alvaro Morata who signed with Real Madrid and they are also likely to lose one of their best midfield anchor Paul Pogba to the Red Devils, Manchester United at £110 million deal.
