The Argentine forward had reportedly passed through his medicals at the Italian giant club, last Monday.
This world record deal signed by Higuan, makes him the world’s third most expensive player of all-time behind Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.

He joins fellow summer signings Dani Alves, Medhi Benatia, Miralem Pjanic, and Marko Pjaca at the Italian Champions, who are chasing their sixth consecutive Serie A title.
