Chelsea transfer news: Blues suffer Gonzalo Higuain blow as striker’s agent speaks out


Higuain has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge to reunite with incoming manager Maurizio Sarri, who he worked with at Napoli for a single season – scoring a career-best 38 goals in all competitions.

The 30-year-old has since spent two seasons with Serie A champions Juventus but has come nowhere near the 36-league goal haul he managed in his last year at Napoli.

Juve are said to have made an £88million bid for Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo, which appears to threaten Higuain’s role as first-choice forward with the Old Lady.

But while Higuain shared a strong relationship with Sarri, his agent and brother Nicolas Higuain says that the front-man will not be leaving Turin this summer.

“At the moment we haven’t spoken to any other clubs, as we have a three-year contract with Juventus,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“He is very happy in the city, at the club, with the coach [Massimiliano Allegri] and the tactical system.

“Everyone knows his rapport with Sarri is wonderful and he sees him as a football father.

“But as far as I know, Sarri hasn’t even signed for Chelsea yet. 

“Secondly, Gonzalo is happy in Turin so I see no real chance of leaving.”

On the possibility of linking up with Ronaldo again, with Higuain and the Portuguese forward having been team-mates in Madrid, the player’s agent added: “It would be fantastic obviously. 

“Especially if he made a strike partnership with Gonzalo. They know each other so well.

“If Juve can do it, this will be fantastic, just spectacular. It’s hardly new for them to work together.”
