Gonzalo Higuain set for Juventus exit

As one of the most prolific strikers of the last decade, Gonzalo Higuain has become typecast by many as a poacher and a flat track bully. Deemed a player who wouldn’t do it on the big occasion, the Argentine has endured taunts from opposition fans as well as his own. However a clinical and proven goalscoring record in Spain and Italy proves that for many Higuain is a top striker.

His time in Europe, though, appears to be coming to an end: linked heavily with a move back to Argentina, it appears instead that a move to Inter Miami will take place instead. The striker, 32, is set to make the move to Miami and leave behind the European game.

Closer to home and playing in a league that might suit his slowing physical standards, the Argentine is expected to settle in well in the country and make an immediate impact. Playing for a new franchise in Miami, too, he’ll have the chance to make an immediate legend of himself to a fanbase that craves big names and interesting talent.

Though his last few years in Europe have been blighted with loan deals and a seeming desire to move him on repeatedly, his goalscoring record speaks for itself. And given his impressive career tally and the positive words of teammates past and present, it might be fair to say that with the passing of time the European game might come to appreciate Higuain once again.
