Chelsea agree €60m deal to sign Higuain

  Chelsea agree €60m deal to sign Higuain Chelsea and Juventus have reportedly agreed a €60 million fee in a deal for Gonzalo Higuain. Reports in Italy from Sport Mediaset, as cited on the Metro, claim that the deal would be pending the arrival of Maurizio Sarri, who is expected to replace Antonio Conte in the coming days. Higuain has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge since the summer window opened, as Chelsea go in search of a replacement for Alvaro Morata. The latter struggled during his first season in London and is said to be keen on a move back to Italy. Juventus themselves are ready to sell Higuain this summer and could move for Morata if the price is right. Sarri is a huge fan of Higuain and the pair worked well together during their time in Naples. The Old Lady have also been linked with an eye-catching €100 million move for Cristiano Ronaldo in recent days, but it is yet to be seen how Higuain’s future will affect that.

Gonzalo Higuaín scored a record 36 goals in Serie A last season. Since Juventus would struggle to meet the break clause without the anticipated £105m they are demanding for Pogba, the imminent transfer indicates that José Mourinho is moving ever closer to his prime transfer target.

Juventus have reportedly made Gonzalo Higuain available for transfer following Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at the club.

Calcio Mercato reports that the Old Lady have made up their mind and are now waiting for offers in the region of €55 million.

Ronaldo joined Juventus in a stunning €105 million move, which not only leaves them needing to raise funds but also raises doubts over the amount of game time Higuain would get next season.

Chelsea have been linked with the striker throughout the summer transfer window.

Claims in Italy have suggested that Maurizio Sarri could launch a move to bring him to Stamford Bridge, with Alvaro Morata continuing to be linked with a return to Serie A.

Higuain's agent denies rumours of a move to Chelsea

  Higuain's agent denies rumours of a move to Chelsea Gonzalo Higuain’s agent has denied that the player will join Chelsea from Juventus this summer. It was reported recently that the Blues had agreed a big-money deal with the Italian giants over the transfer of Higuain. These claims have since been refuted by the striker’s representative and brother, Nicolas. Speaking to Sky Italia, as cited in a report from the Mirror, Higuain’s agent discussed how happy his brother and client is with his career at Juventus. “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.” Chelsea want to sign a new striker this summer and with the expected arrival of former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri not far away, it was believed that Higuain was a top target for the Blues. However, it seems Chelsea will be hard pressed to secure a deal for Higuain, who remains an important player for Max Allegri at Juventus. “Everyone knows his rapport with Sarri is wonderful and he sees him as a football father, but as far as I know, Sarri hasn’t even signed for Chelsea yet. Secondly, Gonzalo is happy in Turin and hasn’t received any indication from Juve, so I see no real chance of leaving.” Competition for striking places could be difficult with the Serie A champions next season, however. It’s been reported that they are closing in on a stunning £88m deal for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Juventus and Chelsea confident over Higuain deal .
Chelsea and Juventus are said to be confident about reaching a deal for Gonzalo Higuain. Calciomercato reports that while the two clubs are still apart in their evaluation of the striker, there is an understanding between both parties that a deal is a realistic this summer. Higuain has accepted Juventus’ decision to sell the player following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid. Juventus are hoping to recoup €65 million for the player, but the report claims that Chelsea have offered less than the asking price during the opening discussions. The move is also dependent on the future of Alvaro Morata, with the Spaniard’s future in London looking bleak. After struggling during his first season at Chelsea, he is being heavily linked with a return back to Italy. Milan are believed to be interested in a deal to bring the player to the San Siro. Inter, Juventus and Napoli have also been mentioned as possible destinations.
