Juventus want to replace Gonzalo Higuain with Robert Lewandowski
Juventus don’t want to continue with their most expensive player Gonzalo Higuain any longer. Bianconeri have been linked with Inter Milan’s captain Mauro Icardi in a cash plus swap deal for Higuain, but lately, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is expected to replace Higuain.
Former Napoli man spent only two seasons with the Bianconeri after record club transfer of €90M, and here they are ready to get rid of him. Bianconeri is ready to listen to any offer between €50M to €60M for the Pipita.
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has shown his interest to change the club in recent times. After spending four seasons with the Bavarians, the Polish striker wants different challenges. His new super agent Pini Zahavi has also confirmed Lewandowski’s interest in a new challenge.
Lewi has been linked with Real Madrid, Chelsea, and PSG in recent times, and Juve is just another big name playing their cards to land him at the Old Lady of Turin.
Correire dello Sport reports, “If Higuain leaves Turin, Juventus wants to replace him with another big name that can make the difference in their dream of winning UEFA Champions League. However, it’s difficult to bring Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to Juventus, the only feasible candidate in their mind is Robert Lewandowski.
It adds, “In the light of the contractual situations and the market value of the three phenomenon in questions, the only one who can replace Pipita without risk is Robert Lewandowski. Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici is considering Lewy as the potential heir to Higuain’s job.”
However, Lewandowski will cost at least €100M. The Polish striker has a contract with Bayern Munich till 2021. And, it will also depend on Lewy’s interest in a move to Old Lady of Turin. Domestic titles are not going to lure him to Juventus because he is winning that consistently with Bayern as well.
He is very keen to make a move to Real Madrid. He sees an opportunity for himself to win Champions League with the Merengues. Although, Real Madrid priority right now is to stole Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain. Only a failure to land the Brazilian will allow Lewandowski consideration for Real Madrid’s board.
Hence, Juventus has got the opportunity to land Robert Lewandowski at Juventus Stadium. If they make a proper offer to Bayern, they’ll definitely listen to them. They are in very good relations with them with their previous businesses. Nobody likes to have an unhappy player in their squad. If Lewandowski wants to change Bayern won’t stop him for a good price.
