- La Gazzetta dello Sport report Higuain's agent is currently at London discussing a deal with Chelsea.
- Conflicting reports flooded media in the recent days regarding the Argentine's future.
- Gennaro Gattuso, Milan's boss appears to be hopeful his main striking force remains with the Rossoneri
AC Milan's boss gave his own take on numerous rumours circulating around Higuain's potential departure to Chelsea:
“There is gossip around him at this moment, but seeing the way he trains, the effort he puts in and the professionalism with which he treats me, you wouldn’t know.
“The rest is down to his brother, his agent and Leonardo. I hope Higuain remains as long as possible, but if that doesn’t happen, then we’ll see. As long as he is here and continues to behave with this level of professionalism, it won’t be a problem for me.”
Reputable Italian outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Gonzalo Higuain's brother and agent, Nicolas, is currently in London. It is understood that he negotiates over a potential deal with Chelsea.
For some time, it has been claimed, that the Blues have abandoned the idea of a transfer due to 'complicated negotiations' involving both Milan, where the Argentine is currently on a loan spell and the owner club Juventus.
Then Calciomercato claimed that it was Chelsea sporting director Marina Granovskaya who blocked the transfer and caused Maurizio Sarri's frustration. The Blues executive does not fancy the idea of paying the asked price of €50m for the 31-year-old player.
