Gonzalo Higuain confirms Real Madrid departure


Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain confirmed one of the season’s worst kept secrets last night after admitting he will leave the club.

The Argentinean striker – who scored his 121st goal for Los Blancos in the 4-2 win over Osasuna – said he wants a new challenge.

Higuain, who has been with Real Madrid for seven years, has been strongly linked with a move to Italian champions Juventus or to Premier League side Arsenal in recent weeks.

Speaking after the match, he said: “I feel that my time here has come to an end and I want a change of scenery.

“It was a decision I have been thinking about for some time. It’s tough, it wasn’t easy to make, but I will go to another club to seek new challenges. “
