Just as many have expected, the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus could be forcing some of their players to depart and latest confirmation suggesting that Gonzalo Higuain might be leaving Turin this summer.
That departure news was stated by Juve’s director himself, Beppe Marotta, in a recent interview with the media, stating that they are evaluating Higuain’s future together at this moment.
Although not confirming that the former Real Madrid and Napoli player will indeed leave Turin, but all indication is signaling at that outcome, with further reports saying AC Milan and Chelsea are interested in signing the 30-year-old striker.
Marota himself even admitted that Rossoneri’s new sporting director, Leonardo, is very keen in getting Higuain, though any potential deal remain far away at the time being.
Meanwhile, the Blues themselves are being strongly linked due to their new head coach, Maurizio Sarri’s excellent relationship with the Argentinian international.
Nevertheless, neither teams are close to a deal for now as Milan reportedly will first sell some players before they can make any move due to their recent FFP issue.
As for Chelsea, their management seems reluctant to pay huge amount of cash for someone who is already on their 30’s, especially since they already have an expensive striker, Alvaro Morata on their books.
