The former Real Madrid striker has been linked with a move away from Napoli, but the Serie A side have slapped a phenomenal pricetag on him
Gonzalo Higuain will not be sold for any less than his €94.7 million clause, according to Napoli’s head of communications.
The striker, 27, has been heavily linked with a move away from the Stadio San Paolo this summer following the departure of coach Rafa Benitez and their failure to secure Champions League fl.
However, Partenopei PR chief Nicolas Lombardo informed the official radio station of the club that there is no chance that the Argentina international is leaving the Serie A side unless his clause is struck.
“Napoli are keen to make an official clarification based on some newspapers’ claims in articles about the potential transfer of Higuain,” Radio Kiss Kiss stated.
“The club stresses that the Argentine has an existing contract clause of €94,736,000. No bids below that figure will be accepted, those who want the player will have to match that valuation.”
Manchester City, AC Milan, Arsenal and Liverpool are among the clubs to have been rumoured to be interested in the Argentine, who has spent two seasons in Italy since moving from Real Madrid for €40m.
Whether said clubs will have to fork out the massive fee or if Napoli are trying to push for a higher price should they be pressured into telling remains to be seen.
