AC Milan and Chelsea are negotiating a sensational swap that would see Gonzalo Higuain transfer to England in exchange for Alvaro Morata.
Italian football is buzzing from the latest reports on the probable Higuain-Morata swap. The Spanish striker is in his second year in England but things are not improving after a very difficult first season. Higuain is going through a similar situation at San Siro.
AC Milan and Chelsea are currently negotiating and studying if an exchange is really possible in order that all parties involved profit from this transfers. MilanNews.it reports today that Juventus (still the formal owner of Higuain) have given their green light to this operation.
Juventus are convinced that with Sarri the 36 million option to buy, expected by Milan for June, could be easier and much more concrete. The Bianconeri are endorsing this operation, waiting at this point to understand if and how Leonardo and Chelsea would agree on a transfer.
It’s still unclear if AC Milan and Chelsea are negotiation only an exchange of loans or if at the end of the season both players would remain permanently at their new clubs. The Blues signed Alvaro Morata for a fee close to 80 million euros from Real Madrid while the total cost of Gonzalo Higuain for Milan would be 54 million euros.
