Argentinian has been a resounding success in Spain.
Real Madrid have confirmed that their deadly front man Gonzalo Higuain will be leaving the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season, reports ESPN.
The Argentina international has been in the Spanish capital for seven years now since arriving from Buenos Aires-based giants River Plate for 13 million euros.
And for the large part, the 25-year-old has been a huge success for Los Blancos, finding the back of the net on 105 occasions in just 187 La Liga contests, while overall Higuain as scored 119 goals in only 260 matches in all competitions for the Spanish giants.
Higuain has a contract with Real that runs the end of May 2016 and so any potential buyers for the coveted forward when the transfer window reopens for business on 1 June will need to come up with at least £25m in order to secure the player’s signature.
“In a great club like Real, we believe we need two number nines of a high level,” Sanchez is quoted as saying in French newspaper L’Equipe.
“We have Benzema and Higuain. Higuain will leave, Benzema will stay and two others will come.”
