Higuain agrees Man Utd deal?

Higuain could join Man Utd

Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has verbally agreed to join former boss Jose Mourinho at Manchester United this summer.

The Argentina international worked alongside the 'Special One' during his time at Real Madrid.

Recent speculation has suggested that the 28-year-old could seek a fresh challenge away from Naples after club president Aurelio di Laurentiis' claims that he had put on weight in recent months.

According to The Express, Higuian has agreed to link up with the Mancunian giants next season, provided Mourinho takes charge at the helm.

It is added that the player will be offered a five-year deal at Old Trafford as he seeks to prove his worth in undoubtedly the world's best football league.

Higuain, who is currently rated at £35m, has previously been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea.

The talented striker has notched an impressive tally of 29 goals in all competitions for Napoli this term.
