Higuain's agent denies Chelsea talks: He wants to stay at Juventus

However, it seems any move for the Argentina global will be hard to achieve, with Higuain's brother and agent insisting that the reports of an agreement between Juve and Chelsea were false.

Chelsea are set to benefit from Juventus if their pursuit of Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo materializes.

According to his brother Nicolas, who also represents the forward, the Argentinian has not been talking with Chelsea or any other club for a move away from Juventus. In London, the Argentine will move at the invitation of the future head coach of "Aristocrats" Maurizio Sarri, who is familiar with Higuain to work together in Napoli.

"We are not in talks with Chelsea", claimed Nicolas.

The 30-year-old Higuain had played under Sarri at Napoli where they finished behind Serie A champions, Juventus on second spot.

The "Blues" spent big on Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid to improve their attacking options, but he had a disappointing campaign a year ago scoring only 11 goals in the Premier League.

"Everyone knows his rapport with Sarri is wonderful and he sees him as a football father, but as far as I know, Sarri hasn't even signed for Chelsea yet".

According to the same story, Chelsea FC still have some work to do to complete a deal to make Sarri their next manager following a hard season under his compatriot Antonio Conte. "Secondly, Gonzalo is happy in Turin and hasn't received any indication from Juve, so I see no real chance of leaving".
