Latest Chelsea Transfer Rumours: Higuain demanding a salary of €8m
According to Chelsea latest transfer news, Higuain is demanding a salary of around €8m per year and although he has not met with the AC Milan representatives or agreed personal term, the fact that his agent is with him right now will help speed up the process, which is necessary given that the transfer window shuts early in England this year.
As per latest Chelsea news, If the deal with AC Milan falls through Chelsea are waiting in the wings to pounce on the former Real Madrid striker who scored over 100 goals in La Liga and Seria A. Chelsea have just made one signing so far in the form of Jorginho from AS Monaco but new manager Sarri isn’t too worried.
Chelsea will start their season on August 5th against Manchester City in the Community Shield match, which marks the start of the English domestic season. The Blues drew against Inter Milan yesterday and will now take on Arsenal in what will be their final preseason game before the start of the season.
As per latest Chelsea transfer rumours, Higuain’s next move could be decided in the next couple of days, which should give Sarri ample time to change his target, if the Argentinian international does indeed move to Seria A giants AC Milan, having already played for Juventus and Napoli.
Higuain had to opt out of Real Madrid after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and the fate is taking him the same way again this summer. Ronaldo is expected to arrive in Turin tonight, with his first practice session scheduled for tomorrow morning.
