The rumours about Gonzalo Higuain’s departure from Juventus started long before Cristiano Ronaldo was signed by the Italian champions. So now that Pipita is about to lose his role in the team, local Turin outlets are on fire about it.
Tuttosport doesn’t even have much to add about Chelsea’s chase for the Argentine, but still, they have a long story about the potential transfer.
Something pointed out by the newspaper is that Higuain has been very quiet on social media. Even though teammates have welcomed Cristiano Ronaldo to the club, it’s been weeks since the player last used his accounts.
The duo didn’t have a bad relationship at Real Madrid, but still, it’s inevitable that Ronaldo’s arrival at this stage would change the role of the goalscorer at the Old Lady.
Regarding Chelsea, Tuttosport are a bit afraid that the Blues can’t afford Higuain, especially if they don’t get to sell Alvaro Morata in this transfer window.
It’s claimed that Roman Abramovich will be spending a lot signing Jorginho, and it’s now unlikely that he would go for another top target.
Still, Higuain should be available, and €60m is all that is needed to sign him.
