Villa Splash Out £42,000,000 On A Striker
Twenty-nine year old Gonzalo Higuain has become Aston Villa's most expensive signing EVER after signing for The Villans from Napoli. The Argentine striker, who is 29, played 131 times in four season's in which over that time he scored 63 times in that time.
This deal has taken everyone in the footballing world by surprise, especially considering that Villa usually only play one striker up front, so this must now mean that Saloman Rondon will have a strike partner this upcoming season whether it is Sturridge or Higuain and with Volland, Sterling and Grealish in behind, this Villa side looks scary. Will there be anymore signings at Villa now? Manager Paul McGrath said this of the question, No.
That was it, the answer the journalist was looking for.
It is a massive coup for Aston Villa and actually shows just how far the Midlands club has come in the time since Mario Plattner took over from Randy Lerner, it is understood Higuain will make his debut this weekend against Reading in the first Premier League match of the season to partner Rondon up front.
