Chelsea draw up plan for disappointing Gonzalo Higuain

Date published: Thursday 21st March 2019 11:05

Gonzalo Higuain could return to Juventus at the end of the season, report Marca.

After just three goals in nine starts for Chelsea since he arrived on loan from Juve in January Higuain’s impact has not been what Maurizio Sarri was looking for.

 

Chelsea have the option to extend the 31-year-old Higuain’s loan by another 12 months or complete a permanent deal in the summer for around £33million.

But Marca report Chelsea are unconvinced by Higuain’s performances and they will look to cut his loan move short and send him back to Turin.

However, the fact that Chelsea are under a transfer ban could well mean they keep hold of Higuain.

The Blues are unable to sign players for the next two transfer windows, although Chelsea have appealed the FIFA’s decision and are waiting for that to be heard.

Fellow frontman Olivier Giroud has already admitted he may look to move on this summer after admitting his future could be “hectic”.

And with Eden Hazard’s future far from clear, Chelsea may well be keen to keep hold of Higuain.

Only last month Italian daily Corriere di Torino reported that Chelsea were hoping for a discount on Higuain in the summer.
