FM16: Gonzalo Higuaín at Juventus

Gonzalo Higuain has become the world’s third most expensive player of all time, after the 28-year-old completed his move from Napoli to Juventus. The Argentine international, who was born in Brest in France in 1987, has joined the Italian champions on a five-year contract. And I decided to make FM16 simulation and write about his time with Juventus and the rest of his career in the game. 

Higuain ended the 2015/16 Serie A season with 36 goals, an all-time league record and as many as Juventus strikers Paulo Dybala (19), Mario Mandzukic (11) and Alvaro Morata (6) combined. Higuain might have reached a tally of 40, but missed four penalties out of the seven he took.

Criticized for a lack of ruthlessness on the international stage, the Argentine has nonetheless been prolific in the blue of Napoli, registering the most shots in Serie A since he made his move to Italy from Real Madrid in 2013 and scoring 71 league goals — 23 more than any other player in that period.

He joins fellow summer signings Dani Alves, Miralem Pjanic, Medhi Benatia and Marko Pjaca, signing a four-year-contract with Massimiliano Allegri’s side after the striker’s minimum fee release clause was met.

Only Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, signed by Real Madrid in 2009 and 2013 respectively, have exceeded Higuain’s fee.
