Higuain will not sign new Napoli contract - Agent_1

Gonzalo Higuain's agent has insisted that he will not accept a new deal at Napoli.
The Argentina striker has two years left on his current contract, which has a €94million release clause.

Nicolas Higuain, who is the player's agent and brother, stated that Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, will not accept a transfer lower than his clause.


He however made it clear that if the release clause remains, his brother will not remain with the Italian club when his current deal runs out.

" is the situation," Nicolas Higuain told radio show Closs Continental. "The president is asking for the clause to be paid to let go of Gonzalo, and we have the right to refuse to renew.

"We arrived at Napoli with the promise of a successful project, playing in the Champions League and winning the Scudetto, with improved facilities and a desire to grow. It wasn't right of the club to ignore those commitments.

"Aurelio De Laurentiis has every right to demand the clause in his contract be paid, but my brother and I have decided not to accept a renewal.


"We'll see what happens next year with Napoli, given that his contract expires in 2018 when he turns 30.

"For now we'll continue to abide by the contract, after that I don't know what will happen, whether a club will be able to buy him or not.

"We have a contract with Napoli and, as a great professional, Gonzalo will continue to respect it. He'll train correctly and give his all.

"But it absolutely won't be renewed if things stay way."
