Gonzalo Higuain admits he ‘could play in MLS’ in the future but remains committed to Juventus at present.
Despite his intentions to stay at the Allianz Stadium, it is believed the Bianconeri are looking to offload the striker after he scored just 11 goals in 34 appearances this season.
Higuain has previously been linked with a potential move to Major League Soccer, along with a lucrative switch to the Chinese Super League.

Despite growing speculation around his future at the club, Higuain insists he is currently committed to Juventus.
He told Fox Sports: ‘Later on I could play in MLS, many players will go and it would be good.
‘But now I’m in Juventus, I still have a year left. We will see what happens.’
Higuain believes the appointment of the former Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo as first team manager will create a different dynamic within the squad.
He said: ‘In five days we will return to training and see how it will be. With the new coach, there will surely be a different dynamic.’
It is said that Pirlo was chosen by the club president Andrea Agnelli, who he had a close working relationship with during his time as a Juve player – despite the fact he has never been first team manager before.
Pirlo’s appointment may disrupt Higuain’s plans to stay at the Allianz Stadium, as he is said to be looking to sell Higuain this summer.

Higuain, who is currently contracted until 2021, is said to be earning £7million per year in wages.
Should he transfer to MLS, it is believed the 32-year-old will demand a similar salary.
Being a man of many clubs – Real Madrid, Napoli and AC Milan – Higuain’s commitment has previously been called into question.
The former Napoli star was forced to defend his controversial switch from Stadio San Paolo to the Allianz Stadium in 2016, saying: ‘How many players went from River to Boca, from Inter to Milan?
‘They said the same about Ronaldo, Pirlo and many others. It is part of football.’
