Interesting. What will this mean of Higuain? 

Juventus don't want Higuaín... He is being sold but nobody knows where yet.

Very doubtful mate... We're talking about Aurelio De Laurentiis here where Napoli is concerned and he isn't a man to cross because there's no way back at all after that.

I would say abroad...  Here in Italy they have it clear that news leaked from Juventus (from quite some time ago) is that they don't want Higuaín anymore.  Juventus want to win the Champions League and last season was a big disappointment for them.

Higuain to the Premier League? Arsenal or Chelsea perhaps?

If it were us, he's going to be vastly disappointed in his contract

That would actually be funny if he wasn't 30.

I doubt it because I think he’s still got a lot to offer. He has to keep fit though because that’s been in question from what they tell me here. Cristiano is older and still doing the busi so there’s no reason why he can’t still play at the top end.

But take for example Radamel Falcao ajd the mistake Man Utd made!

This one is going to be interesting... The whole saga!

Don't be retarded mate, that's not the case at all. Higuain was the one who said he wanted to play in the Premier about 2 months ago. Juventus does not want to sell him and haven't ever said that, Marotta and Nedved both said that he wasn't for sell but that they don't hold players against their will..

No chance, SirBalon based that comment on retarded rumours that started to appear a few months ago but there's not any truth on that. Higuain will either stay at Juventus or move to either a big club in the Premier League or PSG and that's it.

Gonzalo Higuain's agent says the striker has not held talks with Chelsea or any other club for a move away from Juventus.

Reports claimed Higuain was set to make a move to the London club but his brother and agent, Nicolas, has denied the Argentina international is set to leave Turin.

The forward has been at Juventus since 2016, when he joined from another Serie A side Napoli and has scored 40 goals in 73 appearances.

Speaking to Sky Italy, Nicolas said: "We are not in talks with Chelsea. He [Higuain] wants to respect his contract with Juventus. It would be great to see Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo playing together again."

His agent and brother Nicolás Blakuain has denied him leaving. 

It appears as though he may end up lining up along with C.Ronaldo next season by staying at Juve.

Last night on Spanish radio from a very good source and serious journalist, he said that the Chelsea/Higuaín rumours are very real indeed.

Worried?, don't be stupid, if you were to sign him he would be the best striker you have ever had along with Drogba.

His age is the only downside. We'd get a max 2 good seasons out of him. 

Can't call someone stupid then post that last bit in your sentence. He turns out better than Costa I'd be surprised.

From what I understand Morata would be heading to AC Milan which is not where he wanted to go as that would be Juventus.  But he would welcome a return to Italy as his future wife is Italian.  Swapping a young striker for a 30 something is odd these days but you can't deny Higuaín's career as a top marksman.  It would be a short term fix.

We don't do that. Hence why Conte was upset we never got his targets.

Well then you agree Hiaguaín would be an odd signing because he wouldn't be cheap from signing to wages!

Sarri although a different coach to your usual Italian due to his brand of football is used to living in a football culture that has no issues with older players which would mean he would welcome coaching Higuaín once again in my view.

I'd say 3.

What other strikers have you had that have scored at least 25+ goals in one season in two of Europe's best leagues and that has a conversion rate of over 0,55 in more than 500 matches also in Europe's best leagues?

Right, but at the end of the day, our board won't sign players who don't provide any long term value. Not unless they are willing to take a wage cut and a minor role, similar to Giroud. 

It's that very reason why we didn't get Vidal, Nainggolan, Bonucci, Candreva, etc.

It's not about what he's done, its about what he can do for us.

I mentioned previously, I'd gladly take Higuain if he was willing to take a wage cut and if Juve reduced that transfer amount.  He would actually provide some great competition with Morata if the twat decides to miss open one on ones with the keeper again. Giroud is also a good target man, to which all three of them would definitely bring something different. 

Would he want a wage decrease and no guaranteed starting spot? Probably not.

He can do very good for you as he's done through his career. Higuain is no Giroud, he would be the best of your strikers, why in the hell would he take a wage cut or why would Juve lower their price even further? Why would he "compete" with Morata when Morata has never been half the striker he is?, if he was to go there he would certainly be the main striker and you will most likely offload some of the ones you already have. I'd also gladly take Busquets if he was willing to take a wage cut and if Barca reduced that transfer amount, but it's stupid to even want or expect that when we are talking of players who are among the best in their positions, and it's not like they're 32/33 which then would be understandable neither.

Because we don't invest that much money in players that provide no long term benefit or resale value. Our board doesn't operate that way. 

I've said it maybe 100 times.

Do you guys expect Sarri to get anything better out of Morata? The guy talks big about being able to coach the best out of players, Morata is a prime example of a potential £60m player in Chelsea's squad playing like a £25m player and with the right guidance to switch that around, could be as valuable to the squad as any new striker that's available this window.

I don't know. 

Morata was great up until his injury. He has missed a bucket load of easy chances this season. He doesn't come across as an 'elite' finisher, to which you either have it or you don't. Really don't know if that is coachable now given his age. 

Could be wrong. I'd give him another season for sure.

In his first season with us, Suarez looked pretty wasteful with his chances. Also Salah early on last season, he was scoring goals all season but he could have had a hell of a lot more if he was as clinical as he was from December onwards. I think a strikers finishing ability is partially down to talent and partially down to confidence. Look at Torres with us and Torres with Chelsea - even in that season we sold him and he looked like he'd lost his legs, he was still banging them in for us. At Chelsea though he lost confidence for some reason, maybe because he just had a big money move and his body was beginning to crap out on him. And even though he never had that same blazing change of pace that would fucking destroy defenses, there were so many times at Chelsea where he had an easy chance and his finish would be totally dogshite. Also if he was great up until his injury, maybe something about not wanting to get injured again is always in the back of his brain. Sturridge recently said that after years of his injury nightmares, some of the time when he'd get on the pitch all he'd want to do was make sure he wouldn't have another lengthy layout again. Pretty sure he said that right before his WBA debut and getting injured after a few minutes, poor fucker lol.

Maybe he just needs a confidence boost and he'll start finishing better, not everyone is an Inzaghi-like stone cold fox in the box. It was also his first season in the league, it's not uncommon for a player new to the league to perform much better after a year in the league at their new side.

I think he's a good player and if I were a Chelsea fan I wouldn't want to give up on him just yet. Like you said, he was great up until his injury. There's potential in him and it'd be a shame to cut him loose early only for a rival to eventually unlock that potential and use it against Chelsea.

Do you recall Thierry Henry's first season for Arsenal?  Infact right now Henry and Morata have many things in common after the Frenchman's first season for the club.  With this I'm not saying that Morata can reach Henry's level but the similarities are astounding considering the difficulties of where they'd payed and how they'd performed.

I would take Morata for Arsenal in a blink of an eye.  The most difficult thing for a striker to do is to have the intelligence to get into goal scoring situations and the finishing in my view is down to confidence.
