Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain has returned from AC Milan before joining Chelsea on loan for the rest of the season.
The 31-year-old Argentina international spent the first half of the campaign at AC Milan, scoring eight times in 22 appearances, after it became clear he was not in Juventus’ Max Allegri’s plans.

That remains the case and his move to Stamford Bridge sees him reunite with Blues manager Maurizio Sarri after the pair previously worked together at Napoli.
Speaking after completing the move Higuain said he was keen to repay Chelsea’s faith in him.
“When the opportunity to join Chelsea presented itself I had to take it,” he told the club’s website. “It’s a team I’ve always liked that has a lot of history, a wonderful stadium and they play in the Premier League, a league I’ve always wanted to play in.
“I now hope I can give back that trust Chelsea have shown me out on the pitch. I can’t wait to start and I hope to adapt as soon as possible.”
Higuain, who has been capped 75 times by his country, scored just once in his final 12 appearances for Milan.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
