The agent believes the Real Madrid attacker is not far away from completing a move to the Serie A champions

Juventus are close to completing the signing of Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to Fifa agent Ernesto Bronzetti, who believes there is a "70 per cent" chance the move will materialise.

Earlier this month Goal reported the Italian giants had taken a significant step in their pursuit of Higuain by agreeing terms in principle with the 25-year-old. 

And 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%. He has expressed a desire to leave so we will see what happens," the agent 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."
