The biggest transfer rumour this morning is that Serie A champions Juventus have tabled a huge bid for rival Napoli’s star striker Gonzalo Huguain.
The usually parsimonious club’s mega offer for the Argentine has sparked excitement among Man United fans, who think this is a clear sign that their French midfielder Paul Pogba is leaving.
Higuain’s Napoli contract has a massive release clause of €94 million and I Bianconeri are willing to meet that figure, as well as offer I Partenopei players in exchange. The Serie A Champions have now emerged as front-runners to sign Higuain, who is also being targetted by Arsenal.
Juventus has agreement with Higuain for contract until 2020! Now, Juve will contact Napoli and will try to found an agreement #transfers

Juventus are actually paying Higuaín’s £78m release clause. That’s some massive figure. Too steep, but who cares? They’re getting a WC #9

According to the reliable @DiMarzio Juventus have agreed terms with Higuain! Surely Juve can’t afford to buy him with out selling Pogba?

Manchester United fans were the most excited at the Serie A champion’s transfer activities though. They put two and two together to conclude that such a huge bid for Higuain would surely mean that the Serie A Champions were ready to sell star midfielder Paul Pogba to United for a massive transfer fee.
If Higuain is heading to Juventus, unless Juventus have found a gold chest under the sea, Pogba is DEFINITELY leaving!

Juventus are prepared to pay Higuain’s release clause at €94m. The only way they could possibly afford this is to sell Paul Pogba. #MUFC

Higuain off to Juventus? Is that them spending their own money… Or the incoming Pogba money?

If Juventus sign Higuain it effectively means that Pogba to United is all but done. It’s impossible for them afford the finances without…
