The Juventus striker has been linked a move back to his homeland, but he seems set to remain with the Bianconeri.
Gonzalo Higuain’s dad has said that his son won’t be creating a sensational return to River Plate, calling a movement”hopeless” for now.
The Juventus striker has been linked recently with a move to River, where he started his professional career and starred as a teen in 2005 and 2006.
But, Jorge Higuain ruled out the possibility of his son returning to his homeland in the not too distant future.
“It is not possible for today,” Jorge said. “Gonzalo has a contract that still has this year and next year.
Though he didn’t rule out a move, in the long run, Jorge concluded: “At the moment he can’t return to Earth.”
After a difficult 2018-19 effort that saw him take in loan spells at AC Milan and Chelsea, Higuain returned to Juventus before the current season.
Though he wasn’t expected to factor considerably, the 32-year-old has managed to score eight goals in all competitions, starting 22 of his 33 appearances in all competitions.
Higuain has spoken previously about his desire to eventually return to Earth.
“I don’t close any doors,” Higuain stated in an interview with Fox Sports last year. “The future is unclear. I have a two-year contract and then we will see.
“I am constantly tied to River, the players and the fans. To tell the truth, I do not know what is going to happen. But now I want to enjoy Juve.”
Higuain abandoned River in 2007 to combine Real Madrid, where he spent seven seasons and won La Liga three occasions.
Ahead of the 2013-14 effort, Higuain would combine Napoli, where he set the Serie A record for goals in one season by scoring 36 times under Maurizio Sarri in 2015-16.
Following that effort, Higuain moved to Juventus, winning Serie A two seasons in a row prior to spending the 2018-19 effort on loan with AC Milan and Chelsea.
With Sarri taking over as Juve boss this year, Higuain has been reunited with a supervisor with whom he has experienced lots of success.
Lately, Higuain was in the headlines for leaving quarantine in Italy to join his seriously ill mother back in Argentina.
