Gonzalo Higuaín has suggested that he will be staying at Chelsea next season, after admitting he is very happy at Stamford Bridge.
Higuaín finally got his move to the Premier League during the January transfer window after boss Maurizio Sarri convinced the board that he needed to add the Argentine to the squad, especially as Alvaro Morata left for Atletico Madrid and Olivier Giroud could not find the net on a regular basis.
However, despite the speculation linking the club with a potential move for Robert Lewandowski, we have an agreement with Juventus to loan Higuain for an extra 12 months into next season if they wish, with the possibility of the deal becoming permanent in 2020, and the Argentine has told the club that he is very happy.
“I’m happy here,” Higuain said on the Daily Express website.
“It’s always nice to try a new League and it’s my first taste of the Premier League.
“Obviously it’s a period where I’m adapting but I’m hoping that, although I’ve only got a short time, I can finish well.”
Meanwhile, Maurizio Sarri has told Blues fans that Eden Hazard has not told him that he wants to leave for Real Madrid at the end of the current season.
Hazard has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the course of the season if you are a Chelsea fan, as there has been constant speculation that he wants to pack his bags and head for the dizzy heights of La Liga , to work under his footballing idol Zinedine Zidane.
But when asked if Hazard has told him he wants to leave, Sarri told Sky Sports: ‘No, no. Not at the moment. ‘He told me he has to decide [not] anything else.’
He added: ‘I am sure the club doesn’t want to sell him, But of course, we all have to respect his decision, I think.
‘He is in the last season of his contract. If he wants to have another experience we have to respect it.
‘But we will try of course to convince him, but it’s not easy.’
