Juventus and Real Madrid reportedly held talks on Wednesday over the future of Argentine forward Gonzalo Higuain. Sources suggest Juve have come to terms with Pipita, but no fee has been agreed.

Sources in Italy are reporting that Juventus have agreed terms with Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuaín. Reports state that representatives of the club were in Madrid on Wednesday to work out a deal, but as of yet, no fee has been agreed.

Despite winning the scudetto and making it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, the Old Lady had no dominant center forward this season, with midfielder Arturo Vidal equaling the number of goals scored by the most prolific striker, Mirko Vucinic. Each had ten goals this season, a number that might seem paltry for most title winning sides.

With Juve keen to keep a hold of the title while also progressing further into the Champions League next season, Antonio Conte, Beppe Marotta and the rest are anxious to add reinforcements this summer. They locked down Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente back in January, but are also eyeing up Carlos Tevez and Stevan Jovetic in addition to Higuaín.
