Sky Sport reports that Gonzalo Higuain has agreed to his proposed initial loan switch from Juventus to Milan.
The news is believed to be final confirmation that the transfer will go ahead, with everything else in place for the 30-year-old to move to San Siro.
Reports this morning in Italy suggested the two clubs had come to an agreement over the Argentine forward, with the player moving on an initial €18m loan and the Rossoneri having the option to sign him permanently for a further €36m next summer.
The only remaining potential stumbling block, it was claimed, was Higuain’s reluctance to move on loan – particularly without the obligation for Milan to sign him outright at a later date.
However, following further talks last night and this morning, it is believed the former Napoli forward’s fears have been allayed.
As such, Sky believes the deal could even be confirmed later today – along with the proposed exchange between Juve and Milan of defenders Mattia Caldara and Leonardo Bonucci.
