Gonzalo Higuain has gone back to his daddy, Maurizio Sarri after they both had a not-up-to-expectation season with Chelsea.
Gonzalo Higuain has been confirmed to have left Chelsea as the club currently shared on their official website, www.chelseafc.com.
According to the club, “Higuain made his Blues bow in an FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday, and opened his account with two superbly-taken goals the following weekend against struggling Huddersfield.
“He netted three more times before the expiry of his loan, all sharp finishes that highlighted his natural ability in front of goal. Fulham, Burnley and Watford were his victims, and he more than played his part in our eventual third-placed Premier League finish.
“With Olivier Giroud leading the line in the Europa League, Higuain’s involvement was largely limited to domestic competitions, but he leaves having added another winners’ medal to his extensive collection after victory in Baku.”
The Blues had the option to extend the loan for an amount of €18m or even own him for €36m but they refused both as they sent the Argentine back to Italy.
Higuain earlier before now had dislosed that he would love to stay back at Chelsea but reports existed of him been linked to Roma, which his brother/agent dismissed quickly stating that Higuain can only play for Juventus if he comes back to Italy.
Exactly where he has gone to reunite with the manager who directed him when he netted 36 goals in a season while with Napoli.
Chelsea now has just Oliver Giroud as their striker which now opens the door for the strikers on loan, especially Tammy Abraham who scored 26 goals last season with Aston Villa.
The club is yet to disclose if any of their loaned strikers will be returning but all indications point so, considering the fact the London Champions are currently facing a transfer ban.
