According to reports, Chelsea are considering asking Juventus for a discount on Higuain’s transfer fee. Higuain joined the club on deal from Juventus last month and scored a brace against Huddersfield Town at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are thinking of signing Higuain permanently when his loan deal comes to an end. The Blues have the option of signing Higuain for a fee of €36 million in the summer when his loan deal runs out. However, they are considering to bargain with Juve regarding Higuain’s transfer fee.
Currently, Higuain is way past his prime. He isn’t the striker he was during his time at Real Madrid and Napoli. Not to mention his two goals came against the lowest ranked team in the Premier League.
Hence, Chelsea might think that €36 million is a trifle high for Higuain. Higuain did not play in Chelsea’s Europa League win at Malmo. However, he will surely start in their FA Cup 5th round game against Manchester United on Monday.
