Higuain joins Chelsea on loan
Chelsea have signed Juventus and Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain on loan for the remainder of the season.
The Stamford Bridge club will have an option to buy him for RM169 million (£31.3m) or extend his loan deal until June 2020 for RM84.8 million (£15.6m).
The 31-year-old finisher revealed that he’s very excited to join the Blues and is relishing the opportunity of playing in the English Premier League.
“When the opportunity to join Chelsea presented itself I had to take it.
“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,” he said.
Higuain played under current Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri while at Napoli in the 2015-16 season, equaling the Serie A goalscoring record with 36 goals.
