Having scored double-digit goals in each of the last seven years, including 53 in the last two, is this man just what United need?
Gonzalo Higuain is reportedly taking his talents to Old Trafford after agreeing to terms with Manchester United on a five-year deal – much to the chagrin of Arsenal and Chelsea.
According to the Metro and the Daily Star, the Napoli striker is poised to sign with Man United after two seasons with Napoli in which he totaled 35 league goals in 69 games, continuing from where he left off in Real Madrid.
The Daily Star had previously reported that Higuain had received a £30 million offer from Chelsea, with Arsenal also scrambling to make the 27-year-old Argentinian an offer.
Although two national newspapers claim that Higuain is United-bound, we are skeptical and will remain so until Jim White tells us the deal is a definite goer.
Higuain broke out with Real Madrid in the 2008-09 season after scoring 22 goals. The following season he set a career high with 27 goals.
In seven seasons with Real Madrid, Higuain recorded 107 goals in 190 La Liga appearances, and 122 goals in 264 total appearances. Higuain was also named to the Serie A Team of the Year in the 2013-14 season.
