Jorge Higuain, father of Gonzalo and aficionado of beat poet Allen Ginsberg, says that he has permission from Real Madrid to speak to Arsenal and conclude a deal which feels like it has been going on for an eternity at this stage.
According to Marca, who are quoting TuttoMercato, Jorge rapped, “We do not negotiate with any club without permission of the selling club.
“We have permission [from Madrid] and hopefully we can soon see my son in the Premier League.”
None of Higuain’s other relatives were available for comment, but it does look as if things are getting closer to a conclusion.
Yeah, we know. Believe it when we see it and all that, but it’s got to be viewed as a positive.
