Chelsea and Gonzalo Higuain are set to part ways at the end of the season after former Real Madrid star struggled to make an impact in the English top tier
Brought in from Juventus on a six-month loan back in January, the Argentinean striker has failed to live up to expectations, netting just three goals in ten Premier League outings for the Blues.
Author of underwhelming performances, the 30-year-old has only managed to make the difference against already relegated Fulham and Huddersfield Town.
Gonzalo Higuain’s Chelsea loan ‘almost certain’ to be cancelled in the summer after just three goals since January move https://t.co/x2uNlT2jZd— MailOnline Sport (@MailSport) April 18, 2019
After drawing a blank against all three Premier League top-five teams he has faced since landing at Stamford Bridge, former AC Milan man is destined to return to the Apennines in the summer.
Maurizio Sarri was the one to force Chelsea board to take the Brest native to England, hoping that reunion with his Napoli pupil may help the Pensioners secure top-four finish.
However, although Sarri has thought that Higuain’s arrival would solve his team’s attacking crisis, the Italian tactician will have to consider other options in the forthcoming transfer session.
