Giulianelli: EXCLUSIVE - Higuain missus Manchester house-hunting; Busquets wants Pep reunion

The meeting between Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis and Jorge Mendes to talk about a deal for Gonzalo Higuain and Manchester United has been postponed.

The suspension came due to the long disqualification of the player in Serie A. But all seems to be going well: Higuain's girlfriend has been recently in Manchester to see some houses...

Higuain, who's fighting to obtain a reduction to his four match ban, is determined to end his season well and help his club reach second place in the table before starting a new adventure. Very likely in England.


BUSQUETS TO JOIN PEP AT MAN CITY

Another top player is ready to join the Premier League next season: Sergio Busquets has in his heart a willingness to surrender to the flattery of Pep Guardiola. Busquets has been offered a €9.5million a year contract from Manchester City and has no intention to sign a new deal with Barcelona.

Busquets could become the right man to lead the midfield of the new Manchester City of Guardiola.


CONTE FINDS A THIRD ROMA PLAYER

Miralem Pjanic is closer to PSG than to Chelsea, even if Antonio Conte would like to bring with him the Roma midfield duo of the Bosnian and Radja Nainggolan.

But the president, James Pallotta, has declared Pjanic won't leave Roma, in order to build a team capable, finally, of fighting to win Serie A after their last victory in 2001.

However, Conte is thinking about another Roma player - one to take the place of John Terry in the middle of the defensive line: Antonio Rüdiger.

The German defender is one of the wonders of the season in Serie A and Roma would like very much to sign him to a permanent contract. He's spent the current season on loan from Stuttgart.
