Juventus's striker Gonzalo Higuain joined AC Milan on a season-long loan deal in the summer. The Rossoneri have an option to buy the Argentine striker for €36m at the end of the season. The 31-year-old failed to show his best self at San Siro up to this point of the current Serie A campaign and has reportedly asked the club to let him leave in January.
According to the Italian-based outlet Sport Mediaset (via Sport Witness), Juventus have "given the green light" for Chelsea and AC Milan to make the deal happen. The source claims that the clubs have two options to complete the Argentine's move to Stamford Bridge.
The first one is to loan Higuain to Chelsea and Morata to Milan for 18 months if the Blues ready to pay €36m for Juve later. While the second option is to allow both strikers to go out on loan in the second half of the current season with an option to redeem after the end of the season.
Maurizio Sarri recently refused to comment on the alleged Chelsea's interest towards the 31-year-old: "I like him very much, he is a wonderful player and man. But I don’t want to talk about him. I have two and a half strikers at the moment, Higuain plays for Milan."
