Higuain joins Chelsea
Updated: Jan 24, 2019
It is official. Gonzalo Higuain has officially joined Chelsea on an initial loan. Juventus clarified the financials involved in the statement they released.
Despite his struggles at the San Siro this season, only 4 players have scored more goals than Gonzalo Higuain in the top 5 leagues in the past decade. 2 of whom are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Higuain will no doubt score goals for Chelsea and will likely be an upgrade on Alvaro Morata. With his previous season best of 36 league goals in 35 league games coming under Sarri during his time are Napoli, Chelsea fans will rightfully be encouraged.
However, given the forward’s age and recent struggles nothing is a guarantee. It certainly will be interesting to see how the forward gets on as the Blues continue their battle for the top four.
