Gonzalo Higuain is reportedly set to leave Napoli this summer, but not for Arsenal or Liverpool,as the striker has reportedly agreed personal terms with Juventus.
Juventus now have to convince Napoli to sell their star man, who scored a league record 36 goals last season as the Partenopei finished second behind the Bianconeri. Higuain has a £78.4m release clause in his contract and Juve are willing to add a set of players in order to satisfy Napoli’s needs.
Meanwhile, Manchester United fans believe the Old Lady are already spending the money they will receive from a Paul Pogba sale…to the Red Devils:
It’s so obvious Juve are using the Pogba money for Higuain

If Juventus are paying *that* sort of money for Higuain then it means Pogba is definitely off. — Sam McGuire (@SamMcGuire90) 14 juli 2016
Juventus are prepared to pay Higuain’s release clause at €94m. The only way they could possibly afford this is to sell Paul Pogba. #MUFC

If Juventus sign Higuain it effectively means that Pogba to United is all but done. It’s impossible for them afford the finances without… — ㅤㅤㅤ (@Schweinmaster) 14 juli 2016

However, there were also tweets trying to tell United fans that this might not be the case:

As I stated yesterday.. => No need to sell Pogba to afford Higuain.. Also, if Juve were to sell Pogba, they’d go for 2 MFs first before a ST

Not entirely convinced Juve will sell Pogba to fund Higuain because they can make a lot of money from player sales. Rugani, Perreyra Zaza.

Juve buying Higuain might not necessarily mean they’re selling Pogba. They’ve €30m from Morata and could get €30m from Lemina and Pereyra.
