Sarri Targets Chelsea Striker Reunion At Juventus



Gonzalo Higuain

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is reportedly targeting a reunion with on-loan Blues striker Gonzalo Higuain at Juventus according to publication from popular media outlet Goal.

Italian tactician Sarri is said to be closing in on a move to Juventus with an official announcement expected in the coming days.

The former Napoli manager had earlier told senior Chelsea officials that he wants to leave the club for Juventus this summer and he has already traveled back to Italy for negotiations with the Old Lady.

Sarri has a year left on his £5m per annum contract at Chelsea and Juventus are expected to buy out his contract before naming him their new manager.

Gonzalo Higuain initially had no future at Juventus but that position has changed with the departure of Maximiliano Allegri last month.

He was deemed surplus to requirements at Juventus following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid and was sent out on a season-long loan deal to rivals AC Milan.

Higuain cut short the Milan loan deal to join Sarri at Chelsea in January and he went on to score five goals in 18 appearances.

His relationship with Sarri dates back to the 2015/16 season when they were at Napoli together.
