Gonzalo Higuain’s agent and brother insists Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is glad to have sold the Argentine forward.
The 28-year-old has suffered significant backlash from Napoli fans after joining Juventus last week.
However, his representative and sibling, Nicolas Higuain, believes De Laurentiis is happy with the €90million he received for the player.
“Aurelio De Laurentiis said Gonzalo is a great actor,” he told Sportitalia. “I think instead the president of Napoli is.
“I think the president of Napoli was very happy to have received €90m from Juventus.”
And the agent continued to defend Higuain, stating he has made the right move for his career.
“For Gonzalo, Juve is a challenge, because there is now the chance to fight for the Scudetto and the Champions League,” he said.
“Every person in this game defends their own interests.”
