Football: Higuain outclasses Milan to leave Balotelli in tears

Gonzalo Higuain scored his 11th and 12th goals of the season as Napoli outclassed AC Milan 3-1 at the San Paolo to grab their first Serie A win in four games on Saturday. Napoli succumbed 3-2 to Roma in the first leg of the Italian Cup semi-final in midweek and welcomed an apparently resurgent Milan side hoping to return to winning ways after two successive draws and a 3-0 defeat to Atalanta last week.

Football: Napoli move gives Higuain a fresh start

Another transfer saga came to an end on Saturday as Gonzalo Higuain finally completed his departure from Real Madrid to Napoli. The deal, that reportedly could rise to as much as 40 million euros ($49.1 million, £31.9 million) depending on how successful the Argentine is in Italy, represents great value for Madrid who paid only 12 million euros when they signed a promising but very raw talent back in 2006. Higuain has since developed into one of Europe's premier strikers and has an impressive record with his 121 goals during his time in Madrid.

Football: Real Madrid's Higuain joins Napoli

Argentine international Gonzalo Higuain has joined Napoli from Real Madrid for an undisclosed fee, the Spanish club confirmed on Saturday. "Real Madrid can confirm that Gonzalo Higuain has been transferred to Napoli," said a statement on the club's website. "The club would like to show its thanks for his dedication and professionalism throughout his years at the club and wish him all the best in his new challenge." The move ends weeks of speculation after Higuain publicly declared his desire to leave Madrid at the end of last season.

Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has said he wants to leave the club after seven years in the Spanish capital. The Argentine was captain and scored his 121st goal for Madrid in their 4-2 victory over Osasuna in Jose Mourinho's final game in charge on Saturday. However, he told reporters afterwards that he has already told the club of his desire to leave. "I feel that my time has ended, I want a change of scene," he said.
