Plenty of Chelsea Fans Are Dead Against Signing Gonzalo Higuaín This Summer

Plenty of Chelsea Fans Are Dead Against Signing Gonzalo Higuaín This Summer

Chelsea are being heavily linked with a deal for Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuaín – but the club’s supporters aren’t exactly thrilled with the prospect of signing the Argentina striker.

The Blues announced the arrival of Italian manager Maurizio Sarri last week, and he knows Higuain well after spending several years coaching him at Napoli, and it seems he’s very keen for a reunion in the capital.

According to the Evening Standard, Sarri has asked the Chelsea hierarchy to sanction a £53 million move for the Juventus forward, who has established himself as one of European football’s most prolific goalscorers over the last decade.

However, with his 31st birthday looming on the horizon, it appears there’s plenty of opposition to the deal – and it’s coming mainly from the London club’s own supporters:

He’s scored goals wherever he’s went in his career, but now into his thirties, could Higuain still prove himself to be an elite striker in the English Premier League under Sarri next season?

What do you think?
