The possibility of the Argentine striker, Gonzalo Higuain coming to Stamford Bridge hasn’t exactly been greeted well by those who frequent this site.
At 31-years-of-age, among the many suggestions is that the striker is too old and won’t be able to adapt to the frantic pace of the Premier League.
There’s also the inference that Chelsea should be looking to buy a striker that has more of a long-term future at the club.
However, lurking in the media this morning and in particular the Telegraph, is a different slant on the proposed deal.
Our referenced source is running with the inference that Chelsea are looking to bring the striker, to the club, on a loan deal until the end of the season.
To us, that makes sense, it’d give Chelsea the opportunity to see whether the striker is able to cut the mustard in the Premier League without initially paying a huge fee for his services.
Unfortunately, Juventus don’t share the same view with the Turin based club preferring to get the striker off their books by doing a permanent deal.
I get the impression there is still a lot to discuss if this deal is to come to a conclusion, but I’ll endeavour to keep you all informed of any further developments.
