Tuttosport are trying to line up Gonzalo Higuain for a Chelsea swoop, based on two things.
The Argentine striker recently revealed he’s tempted by playing in the Premier League, and that gave birth to a series of rumours.
Added to that is Maurizio Sarri, expected to take over at Stamford Bridge, working well with Higuain at Napoli, and the pieces fit together perfectly for the Turin newspaper.
Sarri would arrive at Chelsea ‘with a series of requests’. One of those would be Higuain, and it’s stated there’s no reason for the footballer to say no to the Blues if his former manager is at the helm.
If this happens then ‘in the Juventus coffers tens of millions would flow together: 60, at least.’
This would allow the Serie A club’s pursuit of Sergej Milinković-Savić to become more serious. Then Juve could make other sales and perhaps go for Mauro Icardi, with Alvaro Morata always on the periphery.
They’ve got it all worked out.
Apart from, surely, convincing Roman Abramovich to spend €60m on a striker who turns 31 years of age in December.
