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.
