However, Corriere di Torino says the striker has told friends he expects to move to AC Milan.
Higuain has texted one friend with the message: “I am going to Milan”.
The Juve star’s brother and agent, Nicolas, was at Casa Milan earlier this week to meet with their new GM Leonardo. The summit lasted four hours with claims of both parties being pleased with the result.
The only stumbling block now is the form of the transfer. Milan would prefer an initial loan arrangement. However, both Higuain and Juve want an immediate outright sale.
