Higuain-Morata swap still on?

Milan reportedly still have the possibility of swapping Gonzalo Higuain for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata as the Argentine’s agent is in London.

The Evening Standard maintains Higuain ‘wants to cut his season-long loan from Juventus short and move to Chelsea’.

Consequently, the newspaper claims his agent-brother Nicolas is in London, presumably to ‘sound out’ the Blues’ interest.

However, Maurizio Sarri’s side remain ‘unwilling’ to spend €36m at the end of the season on a player they deem to be ‘ageing’ at 31.

As a result, they could offer Morata as a direct replacement for Higuain, the publication adding the Rossoneri were ‘the first club to register an interest, before Christmas’.

It could resolve two issues as Sarri would have a striker who already knows and is suited to his style of football, while the Spaniard would end his Premier League nightmare and return to Serie A.

The former Juventus attacker, whose agent is also in London, was a target for the Diavolo in each of the last two summers.
