According to report, Manchester United are the favorites to sign the Argentina international Higuain from Napoli this summer, reports have also suggested that Arsenal and Atletico Madrid are also interested in signing the striker. According to Express the striker has a release clause which is set at £66 million.
This news follows what was a nightmarish end to Higuain’s Copa America campaign with Argentina, after his spectacular penalty miss in the shoot-out defeat to hosts Chile in the final last weekend.
Despite a disappointing end to the campaign for Rafa Benitez’s men, finishing outside the top three and missing out on Champions League football for the coming season, Higuain was one of their star performers.
The Argentine international scored 18 goals and created 48 chances in 37 appearances for Napoli last summer.
