Barros Schelotto: 'Higuain will listen to his heart'

LA Galaxy coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto has claimed Gonazlo Higuain will return to River Plate if he leaves Juventus this summer.

The MLS giants have been linked with a swoop for the Argentine goalscorer but Barros Schelotto has claimed it’s implausible to see Higuain in LA next season.

“Who wouldn’t want him? I would, but it’s difficult,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “He could still remain at Juventus, but if he leaves, I think he would choose with his heart.

“I think he will return to River Plate.”

Higuain’s contract at the Allianz Stadium expires in June 2021 and the former Napoli star has also been mentioned in links with a move to DC United, where he could reunite with his brother Federico.
