Chelsea make U-turn on Gonzalo Higuain

Gonzalo Higuain

The decision by the West London outfit Chelsea to land Gonzalo Higuain a permanent stay at the club has been changed with reports claiming that the Blues will not seek to activate the £31.6 million buy clause in his loan deal.

The Argentina international joined the Blues team from the Italian Serie A outfit Juventus on a loan deal to help the team with their lack of cutting edge but that did not happen as he has failed to establish himself in the team.

Not minding the transfer ban on the team, reports according to Daily Mail claim that the West London outfit will no longer keep the player than necessary even if they will not be able to bring back Spanish striker Alvaro Morata to the team.

The reports add that the West London outfit have concluded to give France international Olivier Giroud a one-year contract extension as he is also considering a move away from the club.

It is therefore yet to be seen if Chelsea will be able to convince the World Cup winner into staying at the Stamford Bridge with suggestions that his mind might have been made up.

Meanwhile, the Blues team are hoping that the transfer ban on the team can be upturned before the summer window is opened.
