Higuain Transfer update: Chelsea Need Sacrifice to Land Him

Chelsea reportedly weigh up a huge move to bring in Serie A’s star Gonzalo Higuain – but it may come at a price.

Spanish outlet AS (via GazzettaWorld) Chelsea incoming manager Antonio Conte is a big fan of Serie A top scorer and will do everything possible to land him at Stamford Bridge.

The 28-year-old striker has bagged a staggering 33 goals in 34 league fixtures this term for the Neapolitans.

As the Spanish media suggests,  the Blues may have to let the eccentric Diego Costa return to Atletico Madrid in order to fund a deal for the former Real Madrid man. 

The Spanish striker is reportedly willing to leave the Blues this summer having struggled to settle in to life in London, and may favour a move back to his former club in Spain.

Gonzalo caused a stir in his last match for Italian giants when he was sent off, launching a tirade against the league, even accusing Serie A of being corrupt.

“I’m frustrated and upset. I suspected it before but today proves Serie A is fixed for Juventus” Argentine star told the media.

He moved from the Roial Club to Partenopei for a reported fee of around £30million.

Napoli legend Diego Maradona had previously urged the club to cash in on Higuain in favour of a move for Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
