Juventus and Chelsea have agreed terms on a loan deal with option to extend for striker Gonzalo Higuain
Chelsea are now expected to sign Gonzalo Higuain on a six-month loan until June, but with obligation of a further one-season loan dependent on certain targets achieved by both the player and the team.
These details were outlined by Sky Sport Italia transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio..
Milan signed Higuain on loan for one season at a cost of €18m with option to buy for a further €36m.
According to Sky Sports Italy, Higuain’s six months at San Siro still cost Milan approximately €17m between loan and salary.
There were also reports from CalcioNews24.com that Higuain’s brother Nicolas is already in London working out personal terms.
Higuain will reunite with his former Napoli Coach Maurizio Sarri
Over the weekend Gattuso appeared to confirm Higuain was keen to leave the San Siro, saying “when a player makes up his mind it becomes hard to convince them otherwise”.
However, he has since backtracked on those comments: “He still hasn’t told me he wants to leave, I am still waiting. You know what I mean.”
