Gonzalo Higuain Completes Medical At Juventus Ahead Of €94Million Transfer

The other big transfer rumour after Pogba-gossip, about Gonzalo Higuain, is coming to an end with reports suggesting him undergoing medical tests at Juventus ahead of a big-money move.

Arsenal were thought to be leading the chase for the Argentina forward after Juve director Beppe Marotta appeared to rule out a move for Higuain on financial grounds, but it emerged on Saturday that the striker had undergone a medical with the Serie A champions in Madrid on Friday.

It is believed that the club, Higuain’s brother and agent Nicolas agreed a four-year deal for the 28-year-old to sign at the Juventus Stadium, believed to be worth €7.5m per year plus image rights.

La Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that Higuain has also signed a lease for a house in the Crocetta district of Turin, a hint of the possible deal to come.

According to the report, Higuain and his brother while selecting a property met the owner’s request for a deposit of several thousand euros, as well as two season tickets for the Juventus Stadium.

These rumours are as interconnected as a spider’s web and if rumours do come true, it will end another end of a big and long running summer window transfer saga.
