Harry Redknapp doubts Gonzalo Higuain is the right man for Chelsea: 'Why have Juventus let him go?'
- The striker will reportedly join The Blues in the next 48 hours.
- The Argentinian is currently on loan at AC Milan.
- The former manager believes there's a reason for his departure from Juventus Stadium.
Gonzalo Higuain is on the verge of joining Chelsea and there's no secret about that. According to The Guardian, The Blues will officially announce the striker in the next 48 hours. The forward joined Juventus in 2016. Shortly after Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival, he was loaned to AC Milan. Harry Redknapp, Tottenham's ex-boss believes there was a certain reason for that.
"You'd think it'd be good news but why have Juventus let him go out on loan? Is there a reasoning behind it? I don't know. If he's that good still and he has that much to offer, why would a club like Juventus, who are looking to win the Champions League and who will win Serie A like they normally do, why would you let him go out on loan to Milan?"
Morata potentially leaving is great for both parties. He never looked happy or confidant and Chelsea aren’t the type to wait for players to develop. But, Higuain is a massive risk. Could blitz the league like he did with Sarai in Naples or be just as poor as Morata. Who knows 👀— Rajan Bains (@Rajan__Bains) January 19, 2019
The former manager believes La Vecchia Signora loaned the Argentinian out as they were sure he wasn't capable of performing on the highest level: "The manager of Juventus is a very clever guy. There must be a reason you let him go. You must think 'well, he must have gone a bit'."
