Seven seasons later, and with three LaLiga titles, a Copa del Rey and two Spanish Super Cups under his belt, he moved to Napoli, where he elevated his goalscoring figures to 36 goals in 35 games in 2015-16 and top scorer in Serie A.

Those 36 goals are also the record number of goals scored in a season in Serie A, only equalled years later by Ciro Immobile.

From there he went to Juventus where, after a great first season with 24 goals, his numbers eventually dropped and after being loaned to Milan and Chelsea, he left for MLS in 2020, joining Inter Miami.
