AC Milan are reportedly wary of Chelsea’s interest in Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain.
Italian publication Corriere dello Sport compare Milan’s pursuit of Higuain to their acquisition of centre-back Leonardo Bonucci last summer.
The Bonucci deal seemed impossible to pull-off, yet Milan managed it, and they appear quietly confident of doing the same with Higuain.
Corriere dello Sport claim that Juventus acknowledge if they want to receive a considerable fee in exchange for the Argentine, this summer is their last chance.
He’s 30-years-old and thought to be valued at around £52.4M. Following their takeover by Chinese group Sino-Europe Sports, Milan have the financial firepower to meet that asking price.
However, the Serie A side are reportedly wary that Chelsea are also keen, with Maurizio Sarri keen to reunite with Higuain at Stamford Bridge.
Both Juventus and Milan have been linked with Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata. The Spaniard may well hold the keys to Higuain’s departure from Turin this summer.
