Higuain to snub Manu for Chelsea
Manchester United have been chasing that marquee striker since Robin van Persie left that summer, and it has been to no avail, despite Anthony Martial’s stunning form. That trend looks set to continue if the latest reports coming out of the English press is to be believed.
They say that Manchester United target, Gonzalo Higuain, is set to reject a move to Old Trafford in favour of joining London club Chelsea – but only if he is named first choice striker ahead of Diego Costa.
The Argentinian has been in stunning form for Napoli this season, scoring 32 goals in just 33 Serie A appearances.
At 28, he'd bring some much-needed experience to a relatively young front line, and that could be key if United are to have any chance at challenging for the title next season.
The fee being mentioned is somewhere in the region of £42million, which isn't all that much in the current market, particularly for a man who has scored regularly throughout his career.
Hopefully Manchester United make their move soon, and can lure Higuain to the red half of Manchester.
