€60 Million Not Enough To Sign Reds ‘Real’ Target

REAL Madrid have all but priced long-time Liverpool target Gonzalo Higuaín out of a move to Anfield this summer, as manager Jose Mourinho insists even offers of €60 million would not be enough to prize away the Argentine striker.

Since moving to Spain, despite his excellent goalscoring record Higuaín has never been able to consistently cement himself into the Real Madrid starting line-up and has persistently been linked with a move away from the club.

However the newly crowned Spanish champions have now made it clear that they have no intention of letting him leave this summer despite the 24-year old finding it increasingly difficult to dislodge Karim Benzema, more often than not, from a starting place:

“He [Higuaín] has an excellent contract for many years,” said Mourinho. “He is not one of those players who arrived a year ago and earns little, he earns at the same level as others.”

As well as Liverpool, Paris St. Germain and Chelsea are known admirers of the striker but Mourinho moved to pre-empt any future bids this summer by claiming:

“An offer of €40, €50, €60 million could be made, whatever, but Madrid will not want to sell. I don’t have a problem. My two centre-forwards for next season will be Higuaín and Benzema.”

Jimmy Areabi (Editor) - @fantasista1077: Huyton raised like Steven Gerrard, football has been my passion since the time I received a Kenny Dalglish badge as a toddler, and I've followed the Reds ever since – something that was easier during the 80s, when I worshipped John Barnes! I've produced work for many football media outlets & am now happy to run a major site on the club I love - providing our fans with a voice, and to bring as much information and news on the club as possible.
Having played football all my life, I aim to continue longer than Stanley Matthews...

    Why would a world star player wants to play Europa league and play for a team that are not good enough for him. Forget it don dream of it.

  • Chan says:

    First of all even if Higuain is to cost only 6 mill, i do not think a world class players wants to play for a clown such as KD who can only be bettered by Steve Kean as one of the worst manager in Prem History.

    Secondly, our clown pays 35 mill for Carroll, 20 mill each for jokers like Downing and Henderson, so a world class player such as Higuain that cost only 60 mill euro is fair no?

      You can crticize the team when they do not perform, but Calling him clown or Worst Manager in prem history shows that you are someone suffering with memory loss or not a LFC fan. The team has considerably improved the way we play football since Roy Days. The only disappointment being not able to put the ball into the back of the net instead of hitting the woodwork.
      If we have to depend on Jay Spearing instead of Lucas then we were going to put pressure on our defence. That’s the reason we have sometimes dominated games then let the opponents in. A fully fit SG, Lucas with a new creative right midfielder would do wonders. Downing, Henderson and Andy Caroll all needed time to gel into this team. I am sure they will come good coming season.
