Giulianelli: EXCLUSIVE - Mourinho meets Higuain about Man Utd move; Arsenal and Sadiq

I can reveal Gonzalo Higuain is the real target wanted by Jose Mourinho for his new adventure on the Manchester United bench.

£85 million is the bid being readied to obtain the Argentinian striker from Napoli. He has scored 27 goals in 29 matches this season.

The president of Napoli, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has put up his buyout clause from €94 million to €100 million.

Mourinho and Higuain's brother, who also acts as Gonzalo's agent, have met recently. The summit ended with them finding an agreement in principle over a five-year contract worth €10 million-a-season.


ARSENAL KNOW PRICE FOR SADIQ

Another name from Serie A who could reach the Premier League soon is the young, talented Nigerian striker of AS Roma - Umar Sadiq.

Arsenal are ready to offer €20 million to take him, the biggest offer for a young Nigerian player since the times of John Obi Mikel going to Chelsea.

With an offer like this, Roma will let him leave.
