Higuain was linked with Barcelona earlier this summer.
"Some of you wrote that I shouldâ€™ve written a â‚¬70m release clause into his contract,â€ť movie mogul De Laurentiis told Corriere dello Sport.
â€śWell, I can tell you that last year when I signed Higuainâ€™s contract there was a â‚¬100m release clause.
â€śAs you can see, the media are always misinformed. They dive into these stories and hypothesise, but do you really think that after 10 years running a club, someone who comes from cinema and produced more than 400 films doesnâ€™t know how to write a playerâ€™s contract?
â€śDo you believe I am someone who doesnâ€™t know how to negotiate a good deal?
â€śI really like Higuain, he is an exceptional person and very well-mannered. So as long as our rapport continues to work, I see no problems.â€ť
