Juventus’ Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain is not going to leave the Turin club. The father of the 32-year-old football player, Jorge Higuain, told reporters that the information spread in the media that Gonzalo wants to stay in Argentina is not true.

“It’s all a lie.I can tell you for sure that Gonzalo will stay at Juventus because he has a one-and-a-half-year contract with the club. And he respects that contract.
After 18 months, Higuain will decide what path to take in the future. The same will happen if something unforeseen happens. I can definitely say that my son does not want to leave Juventus, whose fans love him very much, “said Jorge Higuain.
This season, Gonzalo Higuain has played for Juventus in 34 matches in all competitions, scoring 8 goals and 9 assists.

“Gonzalo flew with the permission of the club. He has no coronavirus. My brother did not flee Italy. He went there to be with our mother during this difficult time, “Nicola wrote on Facebook.
