Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has refused the chance to deny reports of a move for Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.

The former Real Madrid attacker is being linked with Barca this week.

Marca reports at a function, when asked by the local press whether he liked the striker, Bartomeu just smiled and tried to avoid the microphones, stating that this was not the reason he had attended the event.
