Gonzalo Higuain’s brother and agent Nicolas Higuain has confirmed that the player might be leaving Chelsea to go back to Juventus and hopefully play under Sarri at Turin.
“Gonzalo wants to respect his contract and therefore stay with Juventus for another two years,” Nicolas Higuain said.
“His performances at Juve have been good and playing for another team in Italy isn’t a workable solution.
“I don’t want to disrespect anyone, but if Gonzalo plays in Italy again then he only will for Juve, who own him.”
“The parties wanted each other. The Neapolitan people always loved Gonzalo and the boos he received after his transfer at Juve prove it.
“The pain was strong, but I think their reaction was normal because we’re talking about a passionate set of fans.”
“I think it’s still too early [to return to River Plate] because Gonzalo is 31 and, once he’s recharged his batteries, he’ll be good enough for Juventus.
“He has no second thoughts about quitting the national team. He felt he had to give way to younger players because staying in the national team for such a long time is a great responsibility and he preferred to withdraw himself.”
