Higuain refuses to confirm Chelsea move - but a deal looks close


A potential striker merry-go-around could also see Michy Batshuayi, whose loan agreement with Valencia was terminated last week, join AC Milan this month.

Parent club Juventus are in talks with Chelsea as well as Milan over Higuain's future.

But, like Higuain, Nedved was unwilling to discuss the deal out of respect for Milan.

"If you are looking for troubles, you won't find them with me", Higuain told Italian media who met him on his arrival at Milan's Malpensa airport.

"It may seem like a joke, but honestly, it's true".

The Telegraph has reported that Gonzalo Higuain might just have to cut his loan move to AC Milan short if the Italian side agrees on terms to send the Argentine to Stamford Bridge.

Davis Love III shot 6-under 64 to join DeChambeau, as well as Charles Howell III (6 under) and Marc Leishman (2-under 68). He has been to five of the islands, and plans to stay another few weeks after the Sony Open.

The Blues are set to unveil him in the coming hours and it's expected that Alvaro Morata will join Atletico Madrid.

Monaco have been linked with the Belgium striker, but on Wednesday said Chelsea favour a permanent deal for Batshuayi to leave, rather than a further loan. However, since he is officially still a Juve player, Chelsea would need to reach an agreement with the Bianconeri.

The Spanish forward, Morata, has scored five goals in 16 Premier League appearances, with nine goals in all competitions.

Asked why the Spain worldwide has struggled at Stamford Bridge, Bate replied: "Confidence is an issue".

Morata spent the weekend in Madrid holding talks with a variety of potential suitors, though Sevilla have since pulled out of the race due to the cost of signing the Spain worldwide.

Paul Merson has questioned Gonzalo Higuain's pedigree to play in a key role in the Premier League ahead of his move to Chelsea.
