Chelsea’s transfer business has taken a dent as Gonzalo Higuain’s agent has revealed that his client is happy at his current club and a deal may not happen this summer.
There has been talks that at the end of last season, Juventus were keen to offer Chelsea Gonzalo Higuain in attempt to resign Alvaro Morata, as the latter hasn’t had the best of seasons in London. Higuain is a potent goalscorer in Italy and a move was suppossed to be taken a positive turn from Chelsea point of view after Argentina’s departure ftom the World Cup.
The rumors hiked another level as Maurizio Sarri, the former Napoli boss is set to be at the helm of Chelsea as their former boss Antonio Conte may well be sacked even after winning the FA Cup last season.
But Higuain’s brother and agent has recently claimed that the Argentine striker is happy in Turin and a move to Chelsea is very unlikely.
He said, “At the moment we haven’t spoken to any other clubs, as we have a three-year contract with Juventus.
“He is very happy in the city, at the club, with the coach and the tactical system. All these things people talked about other clubs are just rumours, we haven’t spoken to anybody.At the moment, he has three years on his contract with Juventus.”
Sarri and Higuain have great relation between them
The agent admitted that despite the good relations of Higuain with Sarri, no enquiries has been made by Chelsea and Sarri is yet to be named as Chelsea boss. Hence he declared that he sees no chance of the former Napoli striker to make a move in the Premier League.
Higuain was poised to join Arsenal in the year of 2013 from Real Madrid, but eventually ended up in Napoli. The 30 year old was not at his best in the World Cup as his country departed from the last 16 and Higuain mostly was ineffective during the minutes he was on the pitch.
