There is drama here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by Sky Sports that Gonzalo Higuain could well be on his way out of Real Madrid this summer and on his way to England.
The forward has long been unhappy with the rotation policy involving himself and fellow centre forward Karim Benzema and after a simply abysmal season this time round, Real Madrid have decided that a world class forward is needed and one of their current duo has to go. This seems to be Pipita and that news will not have gone unnoticed in the Premier League.
Having already been linked with a move to Chelsea in January it seems unlikely that Higuain will follow Jose Mourinho there given he was held as one of the key figures in the reported revolt against the manager.
One of either Tottenham or Arsenal is a much more plausible destination with both clubs on the lookout for a forward this summer especially given Spurs’ special arrangement with Los Blancos. Add to this the fact that Andre Villas-Boas is a known fan of the Argentine forward and it seems that a move to White Hart Lane could well be the next destination for the forward who has been in the Spanish capital for six years now following a move from South America.
There is also of course the option of Real using Higuain as a bargaining chip in a potential move for Gareth Bale – something much discussed in the Spanish press.
Will Higuain trade the white of Real Madrid for the white of Tottenham this summer? Rate this rumour below.
