Arsenal & Tottenham target‘s comments anger Bernabeu officials

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur target Gonzalo Higuain has angered the Real Madrid hierarchy for what they perceive to be the striker attempting to force through a transfer.

Higuain confirmed his desire to depart the Santiago Bernabeu this summer – Arsenal, Spurs and Juventus have been mooted as possible destinations – following Real Madrid’s final game of the season on Saturday.

"I am leaving Real Madrid, the decision has been made, I feel the time is right and I want a change of scenery," the Argentina international was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"I have not decided where I will go, but the club already know that I want to go. It was my decision.

"It is hard, it was not easy but I want to go to another club, with new challenges."

However, Spanish newspaper Marca claim Real Madrid are unhappy with the comments and see it as him trying to engineer a move more quickly, which would likely see them offered less than they want to sell him for.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly going to embark on an unprecedented summer spending spree and Higuain has been mentioned as one of his possible targets.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly desperate to add a world class striker to the White Hart Lane squad.

Spurs missed out on Champion League football last season but hope to continue momentum from their close finishes in the past two years.

However, Juventus have been heavily linked with a bid for Higuain and could well pose the biggest threat to the Premier League pair landing him.
