Juventus director Paratici says Higuain set to sign new terms

Juventus football director Fabio Paratici says Gonzalo Higuain is set to sign new terms.

Higuain featured in victory over AC Milan on Sunday.

Before the 1-0 win, Paratici stated: “He is playing very well and in my view has always been one of the top three centre-forwards in the world. He's doing what we expect of him, he's a lovely guy as well as a great player and we are very happy with him.

“Over the summer, as I've said many times, we had opportunities on the market and Gonzalo had this absolute intention to stay here. We talked a lot, because in his previous season here, before the loan to Milan, he himself was not entirely convinced at the idea of remaining at Juve.

“That is why we agreed to the loan, but this time around he was convinced. We haven't yet signed a contract extension, but we are very close."
