Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis told fans “I wish” another club bought Gonzalo Higuain. “I’d buy eight players!”
There has been speculation over the striker’s future amid interest from Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United, but De Laurentiis declared he’s only available for the €90m release clause.
At the team’s first training session at the Dimaro camp, De Laurentiis was caught on camera replying to a fan who asked if Higuain would leave.
“I wish! With €90m I’d buy eight players!” said the President.
He was also asked whether the Partenopei were going to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Ciro Immobile, but gave a very critical answer.
“I won’t buy him because he only plays well alongside Lorenzo Insigne and Marco Verratti. We’ve only got one of them, so…”
Immobile, Verratti and Insigne sparked fireworks in Serie B with Pescara under the guidance of Zdenek Zeman.
