Higuain Refusing To Leave Juventus

Gonzalo Higuain is still refusing to join Roma or consider any other Serie A offer, as he believes he can convince Maurizio Sarri at Juventus.

Higuain returned to Juventus after two failed loan spells last season at AC Milan and Chelsea.

Even though there is no room for him in the Bianconeri squad, Sky Sport Italia insist Higuain will not even think about accepting a move to Roma.

He even hired a personal trainer to work with him during the summer, ensuring he’ll be in good shape to impress Sarri.

The situation is irritating Juventus and they need to sell Higuain and Mario Mandzukic before going all-in for Inter’s Mauro Icardi. Mandzukic has been linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund, who have put in a €15million bid for him.

Sarri wants a strong player up front who Cristiano Ronaldo and Douglas Costa can play off, and thinks that Icardi fits that bill.
