Chelsea agree deal to sign Higuain

Chelsea agree deal to sign Higuain

Ever since Cristiano Ronaldo has shifted to Juventus, the forward has been blazing guns.

Juve's Douglas Costa and Joao Cancelo both went close during the first half in the Saudi port city, before a Blaise Matuidi strike was adjudged to have been offside.

Last week Sarri revealed he has told Chelsea that he feels his squad needs two new players in January, with Higuain the first and the other reportedly being Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Leandro Paredes, who would fill the void created by the departure of Cesc Fabregas to Monaco.

Higuain was left out of Milan's Supercoppa starting XI due to a fever and coach Gennaro Gattuso insists that was the only reason he came on for just the final 20 minutes, as speculation linking him with a move to Stamford Bridge intensifies.

"This is only the start, we´ll take it one step at a time". He scored after the Milan defense was caught napping on the 61st minute, nodding on a punt from Miralem Pjanic.

Cristiano Ronaldo has once again written his name in football's history books after helping Juventus win a record eighth Italian Super Cup.

The Portuguese striker, who joined the club for €100 million (R1.56 billion), plus add-ons, in the previous transfer window, scored the only goal in his side's 1-0 win over AC Milan on Wednesday evening.

The match had been overshadowed by controversy with calls for it to be relocated over human rights issues in Saudi Arabia with women only allowed to attend the game if they were accompanied by a man.

A Serie A spokesperson said sections designated for "singles" were reserved for men, while sections designed for "families" were mixed gender.
