Gonzalo Higuain’s agent claims player wants to finish career at Juventus

No Chelsea transfer for Higuain

Gonzalo Higuain’s agent has claimed that the Argentine wants to finish his career with Juventus, after spending part of last season on loan with Chelsea.

Higuain initially joined AC Milan on loan at the beginning of last season.

However, despite impressing at the San Siro, Higuain joined Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea in the January transfer window.

The Argentine scored 5 goals in a pretty mediocre spell with the Blues.

And, with Sarri reportedly leaving Chelsea to sign for Juventus, Higuain’s future has been thrown into doubt.

Now, his agent and brother, Nicolas, has claimed that the player wants to see out the remainder of his career at Juventus.

“He has so much strength and determination, and he wants to end his career at Juve”

Speaking to Radio Marte, as cited by Football-Italia, Nicolas explained that Gonzalo wishes to stay with Juventus and respect his contract.

Higuain’s agent also rules out a move to any Serie A team that isn’t the Bianconeri.

“I want to clarify that we haven’t talked to anyone else. My brother’s also under contract with Juve,” Nicolas explained.

“Gonzalo wants to respect his contract and therefore stay with Juventus for another two years.

“His performances at Juve have been good and playing for another team in Italy isn’t a workable solution.

“I don’t want to disrespect anyone, but if Gonzalo plays in Italy again then he only will for Juve, who own him.

“I think this could be Gonzalo’s year. He has so much strength and determination, and he wants to end his career at Juve.”

Derby to demand Frank Lampard compensation from Chelsea

With Sarri set to leave Chelsea, the Blues must now move for his replacement.

One manager who has been linked with the job is former midfielder Frank Lampard.

Derby, though, won’t make it easy for Chelsea to snatch their boss.
