Dybala bids farewell to ‘brother’ Higuain ahead of Milan switch

The two Argentina stars formed a formidable striking partnership in Turin, winning two Serie A titles in as many seasons during their time together

Juventus star Paulo Dybala has shared a fond farewell to Gonzalo Higuain as the 31-year-old finalises a move to AC Milan.

Argentina striker Higuain is expected to join the Rossoneri on an initial one-year loan deal worth €18 million (£16m/$21m) after undergoing a medical on Thursday.

The former Real Madrid and Napoli man will make the switch alongside defender Mattia Caldara, with Leonardo Bonucci headed in the opposite direction.

Dybala has been Higuain’s strike partner throughout his two seasons in Turin and the countrymen, who were both part of Argentina’s World Cup squad, have struck up a close friendship.

But now the former Palermo and Instituto playmaker will team up with Cristiano Ronaldo in the Juve team, while Higuain seeks to impress at San Siro.

In a social media post, Dybala wrote: “Good luck brother, it was very nice to share these years of victories, goals and titles!”

The pair netted a combined 73 times across the past two Serie A seasons as Juve continued their dominance in Italy.
