Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina has revealed that the club are over the sale of Gonzalo Higuain to Juventus and that they are a much better team without the Argentine striker.

The Napoli goalkeeper told Gazzetta dello Sport that the Naples-based outfit had moved on from the saga that engulfed the club during the summer transfer window.

Higuain had been the subject of much speculation throughout the summer months before he eventually joined Juventus in a deal worth over £75m.

“Although we have improved, it is clear that what happened with [Arkadiusz] Milik changes things.

“The loss of Pipita was an inevitable sacrifice. If someone comes and pays the clause, the club can do very little. Higuain made requests that were rejected and that was how it went.

“Now we must turn the page and look ahead with confidence in people that were already here and those who arrived, with or without Milik.”

The former Liverpool goalkeeper also believes that Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata’s departure from Juventus was more respectable.

“Morata’s move? It was respectable. Higuain evidently does not think like Morata.”
