Gonzalo Higuain: Linked with a summer move

Juventus have been told that they must wait until Real Madrid have appointed a new coach before they begin negotiations for striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Directors from both clubs met on Sunday for the Classic Match, a charity game involving veterans of both sides at the Bernabeu and are believed to have discussed the future destination of the Argentina international.

Higuain revealed to the media after the last game of the season that he wished to leave the club, which he joined from River Plate in January 2007.

However, the Madrid hierarchy are understood to be against making any further decision without the approval of the new coach.

The favourite to take over from Jose Mourinho in the Madrid hotseat is the former Juventus boss Carlo Ancelotti, who is still under contract with Paris Saint Germain.

Juventus director general Beppe Marotta told reporters: "Real Madrid have told us that Higuain is not for sale and that no decision will be taken before the new coach arrives."

Madrid are understood to only be willing to listen to offers starting at 25million euros (over £21million) for the 25-year-old, who has also been linked with a move to Arsenal.

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
