The 22-year-old Serbian striker has joined the Bianconeri in a deal worth €80m in total, signing a five-and-a-half year contract worth €7m net per season. He will become the focal point of the team’s attack in their post-Cristiano Ronaldo era, with his eye for goal being crucial for coach Massimiliano Allegri.
The transfer of Vlahovic from Fiorentina to Juventus is the second most expensive deal between Italian clubs ever, with the record being held by Gonzalo Higuain’s move from Napoli to the Bianconeri, which cost €90m back in 2016.
The third most expensive ever deal between Italian clubs was Hernan Crespo’s move from Parma to Lazio in July 2000, which cost €56m in total. Behind that was Gianluigi Buffon’s transfer from Parma to Juventus, a deal that cost around €52m.
