Juventus keen to do £31m Higuain deal and world class defender all set for Chelsea move?
Chelsea are considering making an offer for Seria A defender Alessio Romagnoli.
It is believed owner Roman Abramovic will free up around £200 million, and although a big chunk of money will likely be used on trying to buy a new striker, namely Mauro Icardi, who is seemingly done at Inter Milan and could leave the Italians for £95 million, Sarri will need to spend big money on landing a world class defender.[the_ad id=”164″]
And according to reports on Italian publication Calciomercato, we will look to fend off Manchester United for the signing of 24-year old Romagnoli, who is considered one of the best central defenders in the Italian Leagues.
Romagnoli has already admitted there has been offers to make a move to the Premier League in recent windows, although he has also admitted that he is happy at the Italian giants.
He was quoted: ‘Inter-Milan is also a direct clash for the Champions League, but the greater responsibilities give me more motivation than pressure. I am proud of it. I want to play here for many years and win.
‘The renewal? A logical choice. I am fine with my teammates, with Gattuso, with the fans. There were offers from the Premier League, but I feel at home here. I debuted against Milan in Serie A. Maybe it was my destiny. I like Milano, I only miss the sea of Neptune, maybe I will hang a picture of it in my room.
‘Milan will win again. It is a solid club which will fight for the Champions League and go on in the Europea League. What has changed?
‘Firstly, the ownership was exposed to so many risks. Now there is the desire to invest. Maldini and Leonardo transmit serenity and know the world of Milan.’
Meanwhile, Juventus have no intention of bringing Gonzalo Higuain back to the club after his loan spell at Chelsea.
After months of speculation and rumours, we finally managed to secure a deal for Higuaín in the closing days of the January transfer window after AC Milan decided to cut his loan spell short after a disappointing few months at the San Siro.[the_ad id=”164″]
Higuaín may not have started his spell on the brightest of notes and many still believe that he is not good enough to lead the attack, but Maurizio Sarri is a firm believer that he will eventually come good and will score 25-30 plus goals a season.
And according to reports on the Sun website, Juventus do not intend of taking Higuaín back to the club in the summer and will look to offload him, as we have an agreement in our deal which will allow them to sign Higuaín for £31.5 million when his loan spell runs out.
