It’s felt like so long since Arsenal were linked with Gonzalo Higuaín; my skin had replenished, I felt refreshed. Not any longer, unfortunately.
The Napoli striker has been linked with moves to Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal and Manchester United with the 28-year-old likely to leave Serie A this summer.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Jose Mourniho, who will probably be named the new United boss very soon after Louis van Gaal was unceremoniously dumped on Monday afternoon, has targeted the Argentinian but La Parisien are insisting that PSG, as well as the Red Devils are willing to pay his €94m release clause.
On the other hand, the attacker, who scored an astonishing 36 goals in the Italian league this season, is also being looked at by Arsenal who have been rumoured to be buying him since the dawn of time.
We’re not going to get Higuaín. Although that ship did exist at one stage, it’s well and truly sailed now.
