Chelsea & Gonzalo Higuain
After Chelsea going to sign Gonzalo Higuain this January?
Now 31, Higuain is currently on loan at AC Milan from Juventus.
The Argentine has struggled at the San Siro this season in front of goal.
Higuain has scored eight goals for the Rossoneri in all competitions this season.
Last week reports circulated that Higuain’s brother and agent were in London to explore possible transfer moves.
Higuain has been rumoured to be a Chelsea target, while the striker has previously worked with Maurizio Sarri at Napoli.
Gonzalo Higuain to quit AC Milan
Whether Chelsea land Higuain remains up in the air.
However, according to Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso, the striker has made it plain he wants to leave the club.
Those comments were made in a series of interviews after AC Milan beat Sampdoria 2-0 away in the Coppa Italia on Saturday. Gattuso said:
We have a very honest relationship, we say things to people’s faces. There is great honesty. When a player makes certain choices, it becomes difficult to convince him otherwise. One can try.
At this moment, he is a Milan player and we’re holding on tight. I don’t know what will happen. We are honest with each other and I want him to maintain this attitude, which has never been lacking thus far.
I’ve talked to him a great deal, but it’s hard to give advice, because the career of a player only lasts 13-14 years. It’s his mind, not mine. The most important thing is to talk as men, look each other in the eyes and speak the truth.
I haven’t figured out what Higuain is unhappy with, because I see him look content and involved in the locker room atmosphere. We’ll see what happens. If it was up to me, I’d invite him to my house, lock him in a room and throw him food every two to three hours. Unfortunately, I can’t do that.
