Higuain Wants Summer Exit

Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has admitted that he is keen to move on from the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

The 25-year-old opened the scoring in their 4-2 win over Osasuna on Saturday but revealed after the game that he had decided to move on.

Juventus are reportedly in the front of the queue to snap up the Argentina international, but with the player having come out to say he is available, the Italian giants are likely to have some competition.

"I feel that my time here has come to an end and I want a change of scenery. I have experienced seven intense, tough and happy years here," the 25-year-old told reporters

"It was a decision I have been thinking about for some time. It's tough, it wasn't easy to make, but I will go to another club to seek new challenges.

"My family have suffered a lot too. It's a decision the club and me took together, and I hope it's for the best."

Higuain was recently booed in their semi-final loss to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, but he says that is not his reason for leaving.

"I am not going because I was booed," he added. "In seven years this is the first time I have been booed. There are other reasons, but I'm not going to reveal them.

"I have stayed here for seven years and that is for a reason. I equalled the record of a legend like Juanito by becoming the 16th greatest goalscorer n the history of the club.

"No one has given me anything for free, I've had to work my guts out. I leave here happy with the goals I've scored and I managed to get the fans on my side and sing my name."
