Gonzalo Higuaín is on the verge of a move to Juventus according to Sky Italia. As reported in AS on July 18, the Argentina striker had already given a verbal agreement to join the Serie A champions and all that was required was to tempt Napoli to sell with a colossal fee. That fee is reported to be 94.7 million euros, which would make Higuaín the third most-expensive footballer in history after Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

Pogba

The Argentinean passed a medical at a Madrid hospital on Saturday and the move is expected to finalized in the coming days. It will also open the door to Paul Pogba leaving the Old Lady, who will need to recoup the Higuaín outlay to strengthen other areas of the squad. Pogba is widely expected to move to Manchester United for a fee that could smash the current world record.
