Gonzalo Higuain has reached an agreement to sign for Juventus, according to Italian sports daily La Gazzetta Dello Sport, and is awaiting for the two clubs to agree a fee.
The Argentinean forward is reportedly set to sign a contract worth 4.5 million euros a year plus bonuses, one million more than what he makes at Real.
Juventus representatives Giuseppe Moratta and Fabio Paratici are in Madrid negotiating Higuain’s transfer. They initially offered 22 million euros, but Los Blancos directors requested 30m.
The deal is expected to be close between 25 and 27 million, since both parties are willing to collaborate. Higuain will sign a four year contract with the Italian club.
During the conversations, Real Madrid have asked about the situation of Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal, who is one of Carlo Ancelotti’s favourites, but Juve directors replied he is not on sale.
Juventus have already signed Fernando Llorente for their front line and are willing to form a very competitive squad to take a step forward in next year’s Champions League.
