Gonzalo Higuain Won’t Renew Deal with Napoli – Agent
29 June 2016 Sports
The agent of Argentina striker, Gonzalo Higuain has said his client will not accept a new deal at Napoli,
The Argentina striker who has another two seasons left on his contract with the Italian club, has a daunting €94 million release clause.
And Nicolas Higuain, the player’s agent and brother, said Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis won’t negotiate a transfer for any smaller amount.
The Higuains warned that if the release clause remains, Higuain will not remain with Napoli when his current deal expires.
“This is the situation,” Nicolas Higuain told radio show Closs Continental. “The president is asking for the clause to be paid to let go of Gonzalo, and we have the right to refuse to renew.
“We arrived at Napoli with the promise of a successful project, playing in the Champions League and winning the Scudetto, with improved facilities and a desire to grow. It wasn’t right of the club to ignore those commitments.
“Aurelio De Laurentiis has every right to demand the clause in his contract be paid, but my brother and I have decided not to accept a renewal.
“We’ll see what happens next year with Napoli, given that his contract expires in 2018 when he turns 30.
“For now we’ll continue to abide by the contract, after that I don’t know what will happen, whether a club will be able to buy him or not.
“We have a contract with Napoli and, as a great professional, Gonzalo will continue to respect it. He’ll train correctly and give his all.
“But it absolutely won’t be renewed if things stay this way.”
