Gonzalo Higuain completed a sensational move to Juventus after the Italian champions agreed to pay a 90 million euro ($99 million) fee, the third highest in history, to wrest the Argentine striker from Napoli Tuesday.In what is the biggest ever transfer fee recorded between two Serie A clubs, Higuain's move to Turin on a five-year deal was confirmed by Juventus two hours after being published by Serie A league bosses on their official website.Napoli had slapped a 94.7 million euro ($104 million) buyout clause on Higuain's contract after he hit a record 36 goals in the league last season when he broke Gunnar Nordahl's 66-year record of 35 goals in a single season for AC Milan (1950).The transfer of Higuain, who cost Napoli 40 million euros when he arrived from Real Madrid in 2013, could now spark a succession of other high-profile transfers.
