Real Madrid have told Italian champions Juventus that they’ll have to dig deep into their pockets if they want to sign Gonzalo Higuain.
The Old Lady are apparently preparing a €22m offer for the Argentine striker who wants to leave the Spanish capital.
However, Real President Florentino Perez insists the 25-year-old is worth much more than such a figure.
“If Juventus are thinking about offering €30m for him then it would be better if they don’t even turn up,” Perez is quoted as saying by Mediaset.
“That amount will not be enough.
“Saying that, we have not received any requests for the player – not even from Juventus.”
The Turin giants have started talks for the international though and are thought to have already agreed personal terms.
Arsenal are said to be interested in the centre-forward too.
Juventus have also been quoted €30m for Stevan Jovetic by Fiorentina given their interest in the Montenegro forward.
