Perez insists clubs pay release clause to sign Higuain from Real Madrid

Posted on June 04, 2013 by admin

Florentino Perez was unopposed at the Real Madrid presidential elections, so he has already started planning for the future success of the club after the disappointing three seasons under Jose Mourinho. The 66-year old is not trying to throw a spanner in the works of Gonzalo Higuain’s future at the same time, but he is not going to let the striker leave for a pittance either.

Higuain has told the press that he has decided to move on, but Perez has declared that he will only be sold if a club agrees to pay his release clause, although we don’t know how much that is. What he really means is that Madrid want a decent price. The Argentinean has three years left on his contract at the Bernabeu, so we have no reason to let him go cheaply.

Perez also claims to have heard nothing from the Italian champions Juventus, with whom he has a good relationship. Juve are rumoured to be the favourites to sign Higuain, with Arsenal from the Premier League also linked. The president has promised to have a word with the player, so maybe he will persuade him to be patient and wait to see what happens when the new manager arrives. We might find that a lot of players are suddenly much happier at the club following the departure of Mourinho.

On the other hand, the new coach might want new players and Higuain could be allowed to leave for a bit less, but it will be for the club to decide.
