Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain confirms that he will leave Real Madrid, which will give a green light for the likes of Juventus, Arsenal and Monaco to make their move.

Gonzalo Higuain has iterated his desire to leave Real Madrid this summer, with suitors ranging from Arsenal and Monach to Juventus all rumoured to be interested in his signature.

His departure does not come as much of a surprise, but the Argentinian confirmed in no uncertain terms he was looking for a new club, saying in an interview after Real's last game of the season: "I feel like my time here has come to an end. I need a change of scenery. The decision is made. I hope the club does the best for me and for them.

"Juventus? It is one of the possible destinations."

With a host of clubs around Europe looking for strikers this summer, the race to sign the forward is likely to heat up. As well as the Bianconeri, Arsenal and Monaco have been linked with the player, and it seems that a move this sumer is now an inevitability.
