Arsenal set to get gazumped as Gonzalo Higuaín says Mourinho wants him at Chelsea [AS]
Spanish paper AS have dropped a bomb on Arsenal fans on Thursday afternoon, releasing fresh quotes from Gonzalo Higuaín claiming that Chelsea are chasing the Real Madrid striker.
AS report that Higuaín has told his inner circle that “Mourinho wants me [at Chelsea]”.
Frustratingly AS claim that Chelsea have indeed made an offer for the Argentine international but the paper fail to indicate how much the Blues offer is said to be. Further, AS fail to note whether Higuaín would rather move to Arsenal or Stamford Bridge this summer.
A cynic may suggest that AS’s article is simply a ploy to try and ratchet up the fee Real Madrid are trying to get for Higuaín.
Los Blancos are now hoping to get €40 million for the striker, and by claiming Chelsea are in the market for the attacker the price for the Argentine international could well rise.
