Napoli president speaks out about an offer made for striker Gonzalo Higuain


Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has again rubbished rumours linking striker Gonzalo Higuain with a possible move away from the San Paolo.

The Argentinean has been linked with Juventus, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid in recent weeks.

De Laurentiis revealed that the Spanish giants are the only club to make a move to sign the 28-year-old but their offer was rejected.

"If Higuain joins Juventus, he betrays himself," the president is quoted as saying by

"He went under Napoli's 'curva' last season singing and celebrating with our fans, if he goes to Juve, that's a nonsense. Napoli and Juve are like dogs and cats.

"Juve would need to pay the player's release clause and reach agreement with Higuain.

"The only club that have made an offer for Higuain is Atletico Madrid, they proposed €60million plus two players, but I said no.

"I am not going to reveal if the release clause expires. Napoli managed to finish second also without Higuain. Cavani is not going to return. When he left he said he was not on good terms with me anymore."
