Juventus held Real Madrid talks over Higuain, Diarra

Juventus have made a move for Real Madrid pair Gonzalo Higuain and Mahamadou Diarra.

AS says Juve sports chief Alessio met last week with his Real counterpart Pedja Mijatovic and fellow director Carlos Griffon to discuss the availability of Higuain and Diarra.

Both players are rated highly by Juve coach Claudio Ranieri, though Secco left the meeting only sure of Diarra's sale in the summer. Higuain remains part of Real coach Bernd Schuster's first team plans and the German is reluctant to part with the versatile attacker.
