Higuain accepts Chelsea but…

Gonzalo Higuain is reportedly open to joining Chelsea, but he wants a high salary, as well as a bonus from Juventus.

The striker is expected to leave the Bianconeri after the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, and the Blues appear to be in pole position for his signature.

The Premier League side are about to appoint Maurizio Sarri as their new manager, the man under whom Pipita enjoyed his best season.

According to, Higuain has made it clear he is open to a move to Stamford Bridge, but that doesn’t mean a deal is close.

The Argentine would want a salary of at least €7m net per season, given that he earns €7.5m per year in Turin.

In addition he wants a loyalty bonus from Juve as a kind of golden handshake, otherwise he could simply refuse every offer to leave.
