Gattuso said it’s not 100%, but gave all the hints indicating that Higuaín is really leaving Milan. After beating Sampdoria for the Italian Cup on Saturday, in the game that marked the debut of Lucas Paquetá, the coach was bombarded with questions about the Argentine striker – who would be on his way to Chelsea. And he answered quite honestly.
– We have a very honest relationship, we talk things face to face. There is great honesty between us. When a player makes certain decisions, it’s hard to convince him otherwise, “he admitted.
– At that moment, he is a Milan player. But I do not know what will happen. We’re honest with each other and I want him to keep this, which has never stopped happening here, “he added.
Higuaín belongs to Juventus, with whom he has a contract until 2021 – the loan tie with Milan ends in June this year. According to international media, he accepted the Chelsea proposal – to replace the terrible Alvaro Morata – and recently forwarded his transfer to the London club.
“I talked to him a lot, but it’s hard to give advice because a player’s career lasts only 13, 14 years. It’s his head, not mine. The most important thing is to behave like a man, look into the eyes and tell the truth, “said the Rossoneri commander.
“I still have not been able to find out the reason for Higuain’s dissatisfaction, because I always see him content and engaging in the atmosphere of the dressing room. Let’s see what happens. If it were up to me, I would shelter him in my house and feed him with my food, “he concluded.
Truly deep words from Gattuso on the Higuain to Chelsea move. Once, I believed in Higuain. Today, I don’t really feel he is everything I thought he was in the first place. He can even score some goals, but he is not World-class. Hard times in Milan. Let’s see if the Rossoneri club can get back to the Glory times.
