#5 Gattuso gives Higuain update
Chelsea have been linked with a move for Gonzalo Higuain in the January market and it seems as though it won’t be so easy to bring the Argentine to the Stamford Bridge as Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso has claimed that the former Real Madrid forward is happy.
Higuain was at his best under the tutelage of Maurizio Sarri and it seems as though he wants to resume the partnership in London. However, Gattuso believes that in order to fix the issue with the Argentine, they will have to understand what he wants.
“Despite hearing a lot of rumours on Higuain, he is training well, he is happy with his team-mates [and] he is happy with everyone,” Gattuso said.
“He is available at this moment but then we will have to see whether he will play the match. We need to understand what he desires to do, how to solve this matter.”
Gattuso then affirmed that Higuain looks genuinely happy with his peers and that he is always in a jolly mood, joking around with his team-mates. Finally, Gattuso concluded by claiming that the former Napoli forward hasn’t told him anything about wanting to leave the San Siro in the ongoing winter market.
“He could be a great actor, but I don’t think so. I see him immersed in the project [as] he gets on well with the team. He is always joking. Sometimes he is like a radio, he never stops!
“One last thing – he hasn’t yet informed me that he wants to leave, I am still waiting. You know what I mean.”
