Higuain getting closer to Juventus transfer, says agent Bronzetti

The agent believes the Real Madrid and Argentine attacker is not far away from completing a move to the two-time reigning Serie A champion.
Juventus is close to completing the signing of Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to agent Ernesto Bronzetti, who believes there is a "70 percent" chance the move will materialize as of now.

Earlier this month Goal reported the Italian giant had taken a significant step in its pursuit of Higuain by agreeing to terms in principle with the 25-year-old. Bronzetti says both clubs have now reached advanced stages of the negotiation process, and he expects a deal to be struck in the coming weeks.

"Percentages for Higuain to Juventus? Let's say 50-60, maybe even 70 percent. He has expressed a desire to leave so we will see what happens," Bronzetti told Sky Sport Italia. "We spoke with [Juventus' CEO Guiseppe] Marotta and [coach Antonio] Conte when they came to Madrid so now we wait and see.

"In early June we will see if the situation has been resolved."
