Real: No Juve offer for Higuain

Real Madrid insist they have received no offer from Juventus for Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain.

The Old Lady are keen on the striker who admitted at the weekend that his time in the Spanish capital was over.

“We have never received an offer for him and he has never told me that he wants to leave,” Real Madrid President Florentino Perez stated.

“It is not easy to leave if your club don’t want to let you go. However, Juventus are a team who we have a friendship with.

“If they are interested then we can talk. I’ll speak with the player on Sunday and then we’ll make a decision.

“If he does leave then it won’t be for economical reasons.”

The Gazzetta dello Sport claims that the two outfits will discuss the player’s transfer on June 9.

Juve and Real will take advantage of the Corazon Classic Match at the Santiago Bernabeu, a game played between Madrid and Juve legends.

Madrid value the player at around €30m, but the Italian champions don’t want to spend more than €22m.

Juventus are understood to have already held preliminary talks with Higuain’s agents about a summer switch.
