LA Galaxy coach Schelotto admits he'd love to sign Juventus striker Higuain

LA Galaxy coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto admits he'd love to sign Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain.

But he doesn't expect to land him at this stage in the 32 year-old's career.

“It would be a dream, we are talking about one of the best centre-forwards in the world," Schelotto told Tuttosport. “But honestly, I find it difficult to bring him here immediately.

“I saw an interview with Gonzalo where he said he wanted to stay at Juventus and in Europe. Maybe it's too early for Higuain, but never say never in football.

“I personally know the whole family, his father Jorge and brother Federico. We have already brought in Ibra's replacement in Chicharito Hernandez and we are happy with him.

“In Higuain's case, it would be a separate matter. It's a dream for the future, but it won't be easy."
