Rumors regarding Gonzalo Higuain’s future in this January transfer market continue to roll on, especially after AC Milan’s boss, Gennaro Gatusso, is also uncertain with what will happen.
Speaking to the media in a news conference ahead of his team’s Coppa Italia match, Gatusso admitted that he doesn’t know whether Higuain will stay or not this month.
The Italian tactician revealed that everything doesn’t depends on his decision, so he can’t really say much aside from hoping that the Argentinian won’t be departing.
“There is gossip around him (Higuain) at this moment, but seeing the way he trains, the effort he puts in and the proffesionalism with which he treats me, you wouldn’t know,” Gatusso stated. “The rest is down to his brother, his agent and Leonardo. I hope Higuain remain as long as possible, but if that doesn’t happen, then we’ll see.”
It’s not a secret that Chelsea’s manager, Maurizio Sarri, is very keen on getting the Argentinian international even since last summer.
Sarri believes that Higuain is the perfect striker for his system and will certainly help The Blues’ ambition in competing for top four finish.
However, negotiation to bring the 31-year-old is difficult considering his loaned status from Juventus along with Chelsea’s signing policy.
