According to Marca, Higuain would be able to pass the strict Athletic Bilbao criteria because he is the great-grandson of a Basque man who emigrated to Argentina.

That’d be the third nationality for Pipita, who was born in Brest, France, as his Argentine father was playing there at the time.

He has already played in Spain with Real Madrdi from 2007-13, moving on to Napoli and Juventus, with loan spells at Milan and Chelsea.
