Wow! Barcelona set to sign Gonzalo Higuain for €40m, immediately denied by Napoli [Marca]
- June 15, 2014
Marca have just released news on their website that will likely stun the football world.
Just a year after leaving for Napoli from Real Madrid, Gonzalo Higuain looks set to be heading back to La Liga in a major move to Barcelona.
The Madrid-based daily report that Higuain is about to join Barcelona for a fee of 40 million euros.
An agreement between Barcelona and Higuain has been reached, although Marca point out that no deal has been struck between the Catalan giants and Napoli.
Higuain is not in the starting XI for Argentina against Bosnia-Herzegovina, reportedly due to a slight injury.
Presumably, Lionel Messi would welcome Higuain at the Nou Camp. Barcelona were heavily linked with Sergio Aguero in recent weeks too.
Higuain would be the first major signing for new Barcelona coach Luis Enrique and would be a statement of intent after a poor season, by their standards in 2013/2014.
This all comes with the caveat that Napoli chairman Aurelio de Laurentiis is a tough negotiator and will likely demand a lot more than 40 million euros for a top striker.
Almost immediately after this rumours surfaced, it was denied by Napoli – see Tweet below.
