Juventus allowed Gonzalo Higuain to join AC Milan on loan last summer, and as a part of the deal the club will have an option to sign him on a permanent deal for €36m.
The Argentine has struggled at the San Siro and there have even been rumours he could leave the Rossoneri in the winter market, with Chelsea believed to be interested in him.
Sport Mediaset has provided an update on the former Real Madrid star’s future and it’s claimed the Old Lady have ‘blessed the deal’ that could see Higuain make a switch to Stamford Bridge in January.
The Turin club ‘give the green light’ to the operation because they believe it would be simpler for them to deal with the Blues, if the FA Cup winners look to make the deal permanent for €36m.
Even though Milan’s desire is to please Higuain, he has officially requested Gennaro Gattuso’s side let him leave and the west London club are keen on acquiring his services to give Maurizio Sarri the striker he asked in the summer.
Juventus’ will is key for negotiations between Milan and Chelsea involving the South American and Alvaro Morata and only the type of deal needs to be agreed for the two players.
The first option is to send Higuain to join Chelsea on loan with a view to buy for €36m and Morata to Milan on loan for 18 months.
The second option is to allow both players go out on loan in the second half of the season with an option to redeem after the end of the season.
It is necessary for Chelsea to allow Morata to leave in order to make space for Higuain.
