The out-of-favor striker is set to end his unfortunate spell at Milan in order to reunite with former boss Maurizio Sarri.
Gonzalo Higuain’s fortune may change in the next days, as the Argentine footballer is on the verge of completing his move to the Premier League, according to a report published by Marca.
The striker, who has failed to reach top form at AC Milan, has already agreed terms to join Chelsea, with only details to be solved between the Blues and Juventus, the team that owns Higuain’s rights.
Earlier this season, Higuaín was linked with a move to the EPL due to his relationship with coach Maurizio Sarri, but he was included in the negotiation between Juventus and Milan, which saw Leonardo Bonucci and other players joining the Old Lady.
Higuaín has scored eight goals in 20 games for the rossoneri, but he has been involved in disciplinary problems with the league’s refs and his own coach. His rant after being sent off during the game between Juventus and Milan made quite a few headlines around the world, and saw Higuaín’s form drop in spectacular fashion.
Higuaín’s signing represents good news for Chelsea, since the Blues have only scored 38 goals in 21 games, the fewest amount among the English top flight’s six best teams. Added to that, this move will pave the way for Alvaro Morata’s transfer, since coach Sarri refused to let the Spaniard leave without signing a replacement.
