Serie A champions Juventus have had a relatively quiet transfer window, but the club have now confirmed a high-profile departure.
The Italian giants have announced that they have parted ways with Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain after terminating his contract.
Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announces the mutual termination of the contract with the player Gonzalo Gerardo Higuain. This operation generates a negative economic effect of approximately € 18.3 million on the 2019/2020 financial year due to the residual value write-down of the registration rights of the player.
Juventus’ Board of Directors has been convened for tomorrow, 18 September 2020, to examine and approve the new draft financial statements as of 30 June 2020 in order to take into account the negative economic effect on the 2019/2020 financial year generated by the aforementioned contractual termination.
