Marotta – No offer from Chelsea for Higuain


Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has revealed that no concrete offer has been made by Chelsea or Milan for Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentine has attracted heavy interest from Chelsea since the arrival of Ronaldo at Turin. The player is also believed to be considered as a makeweight in a possible deal that will see Leonardo Bonucci return to Turin.

Regardless of the absence of any formal bid for the striker, Marotta admitted that the striking department at the club is crowded.

‘I won’t deny that with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo we’ve got a quality attacking department that’s a bit crowded,’ Marotta told Sky Italia.

‘We’ll evaluate things with Higuain, but nothing concrete has arrived from Chelsea and Milan.’

Higuain has enjoyed a successful career with the Old Ladies since his former club record move from Napoli, as he has been instrumental in back to back Serie A as well as Coppa Italia titles. The Argentine scored 16 goals and provided 6 assists in Juve’s race en-route the Serie A title last term.
