After a month of transfer speculation, on 26 July 2016, Higuaín transferred to rivals Juventus for a fee of €90 million paid in two installments, making him the most expensive South American footballer of all time (until Neymar's transfer to Paris Saint-Germain 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 Paris Saint-Germain in 2018).On 4 July, Higuaín was one of two Argentina players to fail to convert their kicks in a penalty shootout loss to Chile in the 2015 Copa América Final, blasting his attempt over the crossbar; during regulation time he had previously been provided with a late goalscoring opportunity, but failed to convert Ezequiel Lavezzi's low cross. as well as his opportunism and clinical finishing inside the penalty area, while his height, eye for goal, and strong physique make him a dangerous aerial presence in the box. A well-rounded striker, he also possesses good technical skills, and an ability to drop deep, link-up with teammates, hold up the ball, and lay it off to other players. His intelligent offensive movement off the ball and pace in the final third of the pitch make him an offensive threat during counter-attacks, and also allow him to lose his markers and get on the end of passes, or create space for his teammates with his attacking runs.

On the international stage, Higuaín has starred for the Argentinian national team. The forward has made 75 appearances for La Albiceleste, and scored 31 goals across all competitions, the fifth-most of any player in the country’s history and third-most among active players. He has appeared in matches at three editions of the FIFA World Cup, including the 2014 run in which he played every match en route to the final. He started six of the seven matches in the 2014 World Cup in which Argentina finished as runners-up, including the final against Germany. He also appeared in three Copa América tournaments, including two in which Argentina finished as runners-up. Sources have told Miami Total Futbol that Higuain was not part of Inter Miami’s traveling delegation to Boston on Saturday, and as such will miss Sunday’s campaign finale against the New England Revolution. Inter Miami head coach Phil Neville cast some doubt over Higuain’s availability on Friday when previewing the game vs. the Revolution, stating that the Designated Player has been dealing with a “long-standing plantar fasciitis problem.”It’s fair to question the small sample size and point out how the difference Miami’s performance in expected goals with and without Federico is much less stark. There are also emerging metrics that go beyond analyzing the quality of chances created. One of those is goals added, unveiled last year by American Soccer Analysis, which actually suggests Miami’s most important players are an above-average back four, winger Robbie Robinson and holding midfielder Gregore.
