Joining Juventus in the most expensive transfer in Italian football history, Gonzalo Higuain is already setting his sights on a Champions League title.
At his presentation Thursday, Higuain declared that Juventus’ goal this season is a treble _ winning Serie A, the Italian Cup and the Champions League.
The Argentina striker says, “Clearly it’s a dream but that’s what we’ve got to work for all season.”
Higuain moved from Italian rival Napoli for 90 million euros ($99 million), which also ranks as the third-most expensive transfer in world football _ after Gareth Bale’s 101 million euro move from Tottenham to Real Madrid in 2013 and Cristiano Ronaldo’s 94 million euro deal from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009.
Juventus has also signed Miralem Pjanic, Dani Alves and Medhi Benatia.
