Gonzalo Higuain could depart Juventus before the transfer window closes, there is concrete interest from Milan in the striker, and his current club wish to sell the Argentine.
In a two hour meeting with Nicolas Higuain (brother-agent to Gonzalo), Juventus presented the situation.
The offer from Milan, the club with the clearest intention to make a deal at this moment, is a loan with €20 million fee, plus a €35m purchase option.
The offer was not wholly satisfying to the Higuain side, but next, Nicolas will meet with Leonardo in the next few hours.
The Milan director will try to convince him of the move, while explaining that the formula of the deal (loan with purchase option) is necessary to balance the books and that Higuain will remain a cornerstone for the Milan project into the future.
This matter is clear between the sides, but it will now be up to Milan’s directors to present an offer of wages that will satisfy Higuain’s requests.
The upcoming meeting between Higuain and Leonardo, therefore, will be decisive for the player’s future.
