Higuain tough act to follow

Juventus must be careful when considering a change, as there are very few strikers who can replace Gonzalo Higuain, warns Vilizar Yakimov.

Gonzalo Higuain has always been a contradictory figure. The Argentinian’s bizarre ability to produce world class displays in one game and unbelievable misses in the next has been dividing opinions ever since he moved to Europe in 2007.

The €90m that Juventus paid to lure him away from Napoli two years ago only increased the controversy and media interest surrounding Higuain. If you walk around Turin and ask the locals if Higuain has lived up to that price tag, one thing is certain - you’ll get plenty of contrasting answers.

Man City losing Jorginho patience

Manchester City are losing patience with Napoli over Jorginho, but the Partenopei won’t let him go without a replacement and at least €50m.

The negotiations between the two clubs are no secret, nor is the €60m price-tag that President Aurelio De Laurentiis has slapped on to the player’s head.

ADL confirmed he had already rejected a proposal worth €40m plus €5m in bonuses, but might be prepared to accept €50m.

Jorginho says goodbye to Napoli?

Reports in Naples claim Jorginho said goodbye to his friends in the city last night, ahead of a move to Manchester City.

The Napoli midfielder has an agreement in principle with the English champions, but so far no bid has been accepted.

It’s thought the Partenopei are looking for €50m before any potential bonuses, while City remain at €47m plus €5-6m in bonuses.

Despite that, Il Mattino reports that Jorginho had dinner at the home of San Paolo stadium announcer Daniel ‘Decibel’ Bellini last night to say farewell.
