Higuain out, big names in?

Gonzalo Higuain’s likely departure means Real Madrid will be big players in the off-season transfer window, the club’s general manager said.

As the fallout from Real’s exit from the UEFA Champions League at the semi-final stage continues, it appears that Higuain will be leaving the Spanish capital after more than six years at the club.

The Argentine forward would have no shortage of suitors, and if he does leave, Real would have increased financial clout in their bid to bring in extra forwards.

General manager Jose Angel Sanchez paved the way for Higuain to depart in an interview with French sports newspaper L’Equipe.

He said: “In a great club like Real, we believe we need two number nines of a high level.

“We have Benzema and Higuain, Higuain will leave, Benzema will stay and two others will come.”

Higuain signed for Real Madrid from River Plate in December 2006 for a fee of 13 million euros.

The 25-year-old has an excellent scoring record in La Liga, netting 104 times in 185 appearances, but his efforts in the UEFA Champions League – which have seen him score just eight goals in 48 matches – have cast doubt on whether he has the quality the Spanish giants need to succeed in European football.
