Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain hinted at a transfer to Juventus after Real Madrid ended their season with a 4-2 home win over Osasuna in La Liga on Sunday.

"I am leaving Real," the 25-year-old told reporters after having captained the side and scored the game's opening goal. "I have been here for seven years and I have taken my time to make this decision - it isn't a heat of the moment thing.

"I came here for 12 million euros ($15.55 million) and they will sell me for more. I have achieved a lot here.

"I know Juventus want me but there is nothing concrete. I want to go somewhere where they prove they really want me."

Higuain has had to alternate striking duties with Karim Benzema under coach Jose Mourinho, with neither managing to secure a regular starting place this season
