Arsenal, Real Agree on $35 Million Higuain Fee: Soccer Roundup

The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers with clickable Internet links.

Higuain Fee Agreed

Arsenal agreed to pay Real Madrid a club-record transfer fee of 23 million pounds ($35 million) for Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain, the Sun reported.

Higuain, 25, will have a medical test today and is expected to sign a three-year contract with the Gunners worth 100,000 pounds a week, the newspaper added.

Pepe Tops List

Real Madrid defender Pepe is said to be top of Manchester City’s transfer targets, the Independent reported.

Pepe, 30, is the third-choice center-back at Real and would be available for about 15 million pounds, the newspaper added.

Saints to Spend?

Southampton is interested in signing former Tottenham Hotspur target Leandro Damiao, whose Brazilian club wants 21 million pounds for the striker, the Daily Mirror reported.

Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino is also eyeing Celtic’s Victor Wanyama and Ever Banega of Valencia to strengthen his midfield, the newspaper said.


Manchester United wants Wayne Rooney to agree to a new “payment-by-results” contract if he’s to retain his 250,000-pounds-a-week salary, the Independent reported.

Rooney’s future at the club may come down to money and whether he’s willing to accept a contract which factors games played, goals scored and United’s success, the newspaper added.

Stay Away

Former United manager Alex Ferguson could keep a low profile during David Moyes’s first games in charge because his presence may undermine his successor and put more pressure on him, the Guardian reported.

Ferguson is trying to find an executive box at Old Trafford where he will be able to watch in privacy, and may even stay away entirely from matches such as Chelsea’s visit on Aug. 24, the newspaper added.
