Higuain to remain, Mandzukic to Bayern?

August 17, 2019 - 11:27 am

Gonzalo Higuain could remain at Juventus next season while Mario Mandzukic may still be heading for the Bundesliga.

The two strikers were suggested to be on a list of players that Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici was keen to offload this summer, but given their high salaries, offers have been few and far between.

With that in mind, Gazzetta Dello Sport report that Higuain may remain at the club for the season ahead, given the lack of interest and his willingness to work and improve to be part of Maurizio Sarri’s new-look Juve side.

Pipita had been linked with a move to Roma, but given they announced a renewal of Edin Dzeko’s contract yesterday, it seems unlikely they will return to the market for another striker.

Meanwhile, Tuttosport report that while Bayern Munich have agreed a deal to take Philippe Coutinho on loan for the season, they are still in the market for a centre forward.

Given Mandzukic has already played for them in Bundesliga, Bayern remain the favourites to sign him, however they are yet to agree a fee with Juventus who are looking for between €10-15m for his transfer.
