Real Madrid president unhappy with current Higuain offers.
Real Madrid president Fiorentino Perez has told Arsenal that they will have to pay up if they hope to sign Gonzalo Higuain this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Argentine was supposedly available for around £22million after falling out of favour at the Bernabeu this season, but it has now been suggested that the Gunners could have to pay over £25million for the striker.
With Real showing some serious ambition of their own in the transfer market this summer, Perez does not see why he should be selling his key players on the cheap, when the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool are demanding over £50million for Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez, respectively.
Perez is quoted as saying: “With £25.5m it’s better that they don’t come.
“Let’s see if people ask us for £50million for everyone and we sell one of ours for half that.”
Earlier today the club also said that they would wait to appoint a new manager before making any decisions to sell or sign key players.
Juventus have also been linked strongly with Higuain, and could now be the favourites to sign him as £25million is likely to be too high for Arsenal to afford.
