'Juve still want Higuain'

Gonzalo Higuain’s father, Jorge, has claimed Juventus ‘still want him’ at the Allianz Stadium and thinks the striker will see out his current contract with the Bianconeri.

The Argentine has been linked with a move back to River Plate in his homeland but Higuain’s father quashed reports of a move already this summer.

“It’s almost impossible that Higuain will play for River Plate next year,” Jorge told Planeta 947. “That Juventus no longer wants him is false.

“Juventus still want him and he has no intentions of terminating the contract. I think it will expire and then later, if possible, he could come to River, or play anywhere else.”

The 32-year-old appeared 32 times for the Old Lady in Serie A 2019-20, contributing eight goals and four assists, and is tied to the club until June 2021.
