Will Higuaín stay at Chelsea Next Season?


Bookmark and Share

By Football Italiano

Tuesday 16 April 2019

Gonzalo Higuaín has had a slow start to life in the Premier League, but believes that given time, he will be able to come into his stride. Currently at Chelsea on a loan deal from Juventus, there is unlikely to be a regular starting place for the Argentine at his parent club if he were to return. For this reason, the 31-year-old may be hoping to secure a permanent deal in England’s top flight. There could be some obstacles, though.


Higuaín has been one of the most prolific goal scorers in Serie A history, and few can forget his 36-goal campaign in 2015-16 for Napoli. The sharpshooter has 117 goals in the Italian elite division up to now at three different clubs. But after Cristiano Ronaldo joined the Old Lady, it quickly became clear that Higuaín would have to make way for the superstar from Real Madrid. Ronaldo quickly managed to find his devastating eye for goal at Juventus Stadium, and after 26 games played, he had 19 goals and eight assists to his name. As such, the Italian giants are absolutely miles ahead of the competition. The crazy odds say it all, with Juventus at 1/20,000 in the Serie A betting to win the title after 31 games played.


Higuaín may have realised that his place at Juventus is no longer secure, and has expressed the desire to stay on at Stamford Bridge after his loan deal expires. The former Real Madrid man spoke to the club’s official site and stated that he wanted to play a part in the future of the Blues beyond the current campaign. He also made it clear that he would do everything in his power to help his side qualify for the Champions League next term, with the fight for fourth place being fiercely contested between Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.


One major stumbling block for Chelsea in making Higuaín’s deal permanent is the fact that they may be facing a transfer ban. FIFA hit the London club with an embargo on transfers for two windows, but Chelsea are doing everything in their power to overturn the ruling. In addition to this, the future of Maurizio Sarri is uncertain. Sarri was one of the main reasons Higuaín agreed to move to Chelsea, as the two had struck up a good relationship at Napoli. But due to the Italian’s sub-par performance in the hot seat at Stamford Bridge, many are speculating he won’t even be there by summer. If Sarri leaves, Higuaín may be tempted to follow him out of the door.


If Chelsea can keep hold of Higuaín, the prolific forward could go on to be a powerful asset for the club. With fellow Argentines Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez finding such success in England, if Higuaín can do the same it would be a fine way to live out his remaining playing years. However, he’ll need to hope that Chelsea can overturn their transfer ban first.
