Gonzalo Higuain plans on seeing out the final year on his Juventus contract but is yet to make a final decision on his future.

A disastrous end to the 2019/20 season saw Juventus relieve Maurizio Sarri of his managerial duties and replace him with Andrea Pirlo.

Pirlo, if rumors are to be believed, is plotting a squad overhaul, and Gonzalo Higuain, who scored just 11 goals last season, is one of the players he is ready to part ways with this summer.

Wolves’ Raul Jimenez, Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette, and Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik are the few names reportedly in the new boss’ wishlist to replace Higuain.

The former Real Madrid, Napoli, and AC Milan man is aware of the media speculations and knows that his role in the team could change next season. However, he refrains from setting any decision regarding his future in stone until he meets his new manager.

“I’m fine now, I’ll rest and think. On the 24th I return to training,” announced Higuain, speaking in a video call for Fox Sports.

“I still have one year left on my contract in Italy. I have to introduce myself and see what happens with the new coach. It will certainly be a different dynamic.”
