When you spend £75 million on a player, you expect them to be in the best possible physical condition.

That doesn’t appear to be the case with Gonzalo Higuain.

The fourth most expensive player in history made his debut against West Ham last weekend and pictures clearly showed the 28-year-old carrying a bit of extra weight.

And it seems as though Juventus have listened to those branding the Argentine overweight. That’s because, according to Gazzetta dello sport, the Old Lady have put Higuain on a strict diet.

The report states that, although the Serie A champions aren’t worried about Higuain's weight, they are keen for him to lose a bit of excess weight before the league season starts next weekend.

It also claims that Higuain’s previous club, Napoli, had nutritionist Raffaele Canon to design a specific diet for their star forward to help him keep himself slim.

This report comes in the same week that former Real Madrid and Barcelona midfielder Robert Prosinecki slammed Higuain’s fitness.

"I was shocked to see Higuain, he is even more fat than me," he told Jutarnji List, as per Goal.

"They paid 94 million [Euros] for him and he's arrived as a 'little pig!'

"I can imagine how shocked Allegri was, after he insisted on his signing. But they will make him fit soon."

One thing is for sure, the Italian giants have no intentions of dropping Higuain for his physique and plan to start him during tonight’s friendly against Espanyol.
