Morata or Martial if Higuain leaves?

Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri has made it clear he wants Alvaro Morata or Anthony Martial if Gonzalo Higuain leaves, reports suggest.

Pipita has been linked with a move away from the Bianconeri this summer, with suggestions they’ll accept bids of over €63m in order to break even on the €94m deal from Napoli two years ago.

The striker isn’t unhappy at Juve, reports the Gazzetta dello Sport, but he’d prefer to play in a team set up to serve him as he enjoyed with Maurizio Sarri at Napoli.

Higuain tough act to follow

Juventus must be careful when considering a change, as there are very few strikers who can replace Gonzalo Higuain, warns Vilizar Yakimov.

Gonzalo Higuain has always been a contradictory figure. The Argentinian’s bizarre ability to produce world class displays in one game and unbelievable misses in the next has been dividing opinions ever since he moved to Europe in 2007.

The €90m that Juventus paid to lure him away from Napoli two years ago only increased the controversy and media interest surrounding Higuain. If you walk around Turin and ask the locals if Higuain has lived up to that price tag, one thing is certain - you’ll get plenty of contrasting answers.

Morata or Falcao for Milan

Milan are reportedly chasing Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, with Monaco’s Falcao as the alternative.

The Rossoneri are looking to sign a new forward this summer, as both Nikola Kalinic and André Silva failed to hit double figures this season.

According to this morning’s Gazzetta dello Sport, Morata has been identified as the number one target, with the Diavolo having tried to sign him last summer.

The stumbling block is UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body, who could throw Milan out of the Europa League later this month.

Juventus ready to sell Higuain

Reports are spreading rapidly that Juventus have put Gonzalo Higuain on the market for €55-60m and no longer consider him crucial.

The Bianconeri paid €90m to activate the release clause in his contract in the summer of 2016 after he shattered Serie A records at Napoli.

Just two years later, the 30-year-old is said to be up for sale and Juve open to offers in the region of €55-60m.

Sarri enters Abramovich trap

In some ways, Maurizio Sarri is the ideal Coach for Roman Abramovich's Chelsea, but Daryl Hammond worries he won't get the time to prove it.

Since buying Chelsea in 2003, Russian Oligarch Roman Abramovich has longed for three things. Success in England, success in Europe, and to do it all playing attractive football.

Several millions later, he cracked the code to the Premier League title in two years, and has won 15 domestic trophies during his tenure. And they conquered Europe against all odds, beating Bayern to win the Champions League in 2012 and the Europa League a year later. But through all that success, his sides have never been the most stylish.
