Gonzalo Higuain signals Real Madrid departure amid interest from Premier League
Striker could line-up against Galatasaray tonight
Tuesday 09 April 2013
Gonzalo Higuain dropped a heavy hint last night that his future lies away from Real Madrid as the club prepared to seal a Champions League semi-final place.
The striker, 25, who has been linked with a move to the Premier League, said: "I only say I am committed and will help the club until the end of the season."
Real face Didier Drogba's Galatasaray in Istanbul tonight with a three-goal advantage from the first leg. They will be without suspended pair Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso but Cristiano Ronaldo is confident. "If we go with the ambition to score a goal, we will go through fine," he said.
In tonight's other quarter-final second leg, Borussia Dortmund are cautiously optimistic as they prepare to face Malaga after the first game in Spain ended goalless. Dortmund, the only unbeaten side left in the competition, have won all four of their Champions League home games this season.
