ROME – Juventus have signed Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuaín from Napoli, a spokesman for Napoli said on Tuesday.

“I can confirm that the contract has been deposited with the League and the deal has been done,” Napoli spokesman Nicola Lombardi said.

Juventus will pay 90 million euros in two tranches for Higuain, who still had two years to run on his contract, Lombardi added.

Last season Higuain scored a record 36 Serie A goals for Napoli, who finished runners-up as Juventus won its fifth consecutive title.

The news that he was poised to join Juventus caused anguish among Napoli fans, who gathered in Naples city centre on Saturday to tear up pictures of the Argentine and set fire to replicas of his number nine shirt.
