Juventus close in on Higuain
According to Goal, Gonzalo has agreed to a four year deal worth €7 million a year with fellow Serie A side Juventus.
The deal is not completed but it has been confirmed that Juventus has reached an agreement with the Argentine striker and will now attempt to reach an agreement with his club Napoli.
Higuain’s €94m buy-out clause may delay the deal as Juventus is unwilling to pay and are instead willing to offer players to bring the price down.
The 28-year old, was outstanding last season, scoring 36 goals in 35 games. No wonder he has been a target for clubs like Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea since last season.
Pogba tips Ronaldo for Ballon d’Or
Everyone, including Paul Pogba thinks Ronaldo is the ideal candidate for the upcoming Ballon d’Or. Serie A star, Pogba, has backed Cristiano Ronaldo to win the prestigious award, after he won both the Champions League and Euro 2016 for his club and country.
Though he admits Lionel Messi, who won the last Ballon d’Or in January, also had a great season, he insists that the Madrid star is more worthy of the award.
“You have [Lionel] Messi, you have Ronaldo. Honestly, I like them both. [Antoine] Griezmann has had an amazing year,” he told ESPN Deportes.
“For me, it’s Cristiano Ronaldo [who should win], because he won the Champions League and Euro 2016.”
