â€śJuventus were seriously interested in taking Higuain,â€ť Bronzetti told Tuttosport.
â€śI remember after the game between the two clubsâ€™ formers stars, we sat down and had a drink together.
â€śJuve director Beppe Marotta and President Andrea Agnelli told Real chief Florentino Perez that â‚¬35m for Higuain was too much.
â€śHe responded by telling them that someone would pay that by the time the transfer window closed, given that there were few strikers like him around. And that was what happened.
â€śJuventus wouldnâ€™t go over â‚¬22m, â‚¬23m, but Florentino knows the market well and he understood the value of Higuain.
â€śHe was, nevertheless, disappointed because he would have wanted to give him to Juventus. Heâ€™s a romantic, but moneyâ€¦â€ť
