Just two years ago, Juventus broke the Italian Serie A record by signing Gonzalo Higuain in a deal worth £75.3 million.

Chelsea are now reportedly in signing the 30-year-old Argentine to spearhead our attack next season, and it seems Juve are willing to do business.

Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta said the Old Lady’s front line is now “a bit crowded” after the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

Juve are now keen to sell Higuain to free up space for Ronaldo and also recoup some of the £100m spent on Ronaldo.

However, Marotta revealed the Blues have yet to make an official offer for the Argentinian striker but hinted Juve are awaiting a bid, per Sky (via Football Italia): “I won’t deny that with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo we’ve got a quality attacking department that’s a bit crowded. We’ll evaluate things with Higuain, but nothing concrete has arrived from Chelsea and Milan.”
