Chelsea dismiss Higuain ‘bid’

Chelsea have made no attempt to sign Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli, boss Jose Mourinho has stated.

The London club were being linked with a €60m bid for the Argentine international striker, but Mourinho insists such a move won’t happen.

“I don’t believe they are interested in selling Higuain, so why should we be interested in someone we feel it’s impossible to get?” he stated.

“He’s a player I know we cannot get, because he moved from Real Madrid to Napoli six months ago, he is doing very well and Napoli is not normally a club that sells.”

Higuain, who worked under Mourinho at Real, cost Napoli €37.5m in the summer. He has scored 13 goals in 21 games for the Italian club so far.
