Chelsea confident Juventus will cut Higuain price

Chelsea confident Juventus will cut Higuain price Chelsea are said to be confident Juventus will lower the agreed fee of €36 million to make Gonzalo Higuain’s move to Stamford Bridge a permanent one. A report from ESPN states that the Blues coughed up €9 million in an initial loan fee for the Juve man, who had been loaned out to Milan in the earlier portion of the season. Having struggled at the San Siro, the 31-year-old has been enjoying better fortunes in England. With two goals in his first four appearances, the forward has filled the void long experienced at the top of Chelsea’s formation.

The Blues are close to securing a move for their main transfer target, as significant progress is made with the Supercoppa winners.
