The 26-year-old Uruguay international, Serie A's top scorer last season with 29 goals, has joined Laurent Blanc's Qatari-backed side on a five year contract. The previous highest transfer was set earlier this year, when Colombia forward Radamel Falcao signed for Monaco from Atletico Madrid for a figure estimated at nearly 60 million euros. cd-pgr/nr/bc
