- Gonzalo Higuain rejected a move to Chelsea in the last transfer window
- Hiddink couldn’t guarantee the Argentine playing time over Diego Costa
£40million+, that’s the fee that Chelsea were willing to pay Napoli for the services of Gonzalo Higuain in the recently closed January transfer window, that’s according to the Daily Mail.
The Argentina international, who has 24 goals in 24 Serie A appearances this season…
…rejected a move to the Blues due to the fact Guus Hiddink couldn’t guarantee that he’d start ahead of the back-in-form Diego Costa.
No footballer wants to play second fiddle – unless your name is Steve Harper – but there are several more reasons as to why Higuain rejected a move to Stamford Bridge.
Higuain is currently in a long-term relationship; he didn’t want to risk it.
