International

Real To Sell Higuain

Real Madrid have decided to sell Argentine international striker, Gonzalo Higuain.

The club’s general manager, Jose Angel Sanchez, says that Higuain will leave at the end of the season, but the services of Karim Benzema will be retained.

Higuain and Benzema played vital roles as Los Blancos won La Liga in record breaking fashion last season.

But the goals have dried up for the duo, leaving Cristiano Ronaldo as Real’s sole reliable goal threat.

Higuain has scored just 14 goals for Real this season, and while Benzema has not been markedly better, it seems the French international will survive the cull at the Bernabeu.

"In a great club like real, we believe we need two number nines of a high level," Sanchez said in L'Equipe.

"We have Benzema and Higuain.

"Higuain will leave, Benzema will stay and two others will come."

Tottenham Hotspur star, Gareth Bale, and Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, are reportedly the two names at the top of Real’s transfer wish list.

Higuain may have endured a disappointing season, but he remains one of the world’s top finishers when on form, and he will surely find a new high-profile club to call home.
