AC Milan Boss Sends Warning To Gonzalo Higuain Amid Premier League

11 January, 2019, 08:44 | Author: Drew Briggs
  • Gonzalo Higuain has endured a difficult spell on loan at Milan

Higuain joined Milan on a season-long loan from Juventus in July with an option to make the deal permanent, but he has struggled to settle at the seven-time European champion, scoring eight goals in all competitions.

The 32-year-old French World Cup victor may have only scored one goal in the league (against Tottenham Hotspur), but his ability to dovetail with Eden Hazard in attack can be the catalyst for Chelsea rocketing through the second half of the season.

Higuain enjoyed mild success at Juventus, before the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo forced him to move on loan to AC Milan.

Now Chelsea are closing in on finalising a move which will see the striker continue his career in the Premier League.

Higuain meanwhile will battle Olivier Giroud to get the nod as Chelsea's main striker.

Karolina Pliskova hangs with snakes, animals in Brisbane
A champion in Brisbane two years ago, Pliskova boasts the third-best winning percentage in the Brisbane tournament's history with 12 wins and just two losses.

Higuain is thus, a viable target for Chelsea, who can have a short-term solution in a striker who is a proven quantity and can help take some burden off Hazard. But Chelsea are believed to be willing to offer Morata as a makeweight in the deal.

The report details that the Argentina worldwide could make the switch to the Premier League in January, as Milan are prepared to cut his loan spell with them.

Chelsea are not prepared to sell Morata in January, mindful of the fact that his underwhelming performances at Stamford Bridge since arriving from Real Madrid in the summer of 2017 ensure he will not attract offers anything like the £58 million they paid to sign him.

However, the deal remains complicated with AC Milan remaining reluctant to terminate their existing loan contract with the Argentine and this could shift the Blues' interest elsewhere.

According to Marca, Chelsea have contacted the 31-year-old about a switch to Stamford Bridge and he's accepted the terms over a move.
