About Gonzalo Higuaín

  • Gonzalo Gerardo Higuaín (Spanish pronunciation: [gon'salo i?wa'in], born 10 December 1987) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a striker for Serie A club Juventus. Nicknamed El Pipita or Pipa, as was his father Jorge, who was also a footballer, Gonzalo Higuaín was born in France, attaining Argentine citizenship in 2007, and now holds dual nationality.
  • He started his career with Argentine club River Plate, before a transfer to Real Madrid in January 2007 for €12 million.
  • His time in Spain saw him win several domestic honours, including three La Liga titles, and score 107 goals in 190 league appearances.
  • He joined Italian side Napoli for €40 million in July 2013, where he won the Coppa Italia during his first season.
  • In the 2015–16 season, he scored 36 league goals, winning the Capocannoniere title and equalling Gino Rossetti's 87-year-old record for goals in an Italian top-flight season.
  • As a result of his goal scoring exploits in Naples, Italian champions Juventus signed him for €90 million in 2016, making him the most expensive South American footballer of all time (until Neymar's transfer to PSG in 2017); his transfer fee was the highest ever paid by an Italian team (until Cristiano Ronaldo's transfer to Juventus in 2018) and also the highest of a player transferring within any domestic league (until Kylian Mbappé's transfer to PSG in 2018).
  • He won domestic doubles in his first two seasons with Juventus, also reaching the 2017 Champions League final with the club.
  • In 2018, he was loaned to A.C.
  • Milan, and later to Chelsea in January 2019, before returning to Juventus in the summer. Higuaín made his full international debut for Argentina in 2009; he represented the country at three FIFA World Cups and three Copa América tournaments, helping them to second-place finishes at the 2014 World Cup, the 2015 Copa América, and the Copa América Centenario in 2016.
  • After no longer being called-up following Argentina's round-of-16 exit at the 2018 World Cup, he announced his retirement from international football in March 2019.
  • In total, he earned 75 caps for his nation scoring 31 goals.
