Chelsea’s coach, Maurizio Sarri admitted that he felt disappointed by the fact that the club had failed to bring in one of the players he wanted to be part of his squad for the upcoming 2018/19 season campaign at Chelsea. Nevertheless, Sarri realized that not all targets could be realized in the transfer market.
As is known, Maurizio Sarri is a coach who relies heavily on Gonzalo Higuain, when the two figures are still working for Napoli. They worked hand in hand to bring the club into a title competition in the Italian Serie A event. After then, they split up since the Argentine National Team striker decided to dock with the Rival Club, Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window through a ransom of 90 million Euros.
Sarri, who had survived at Napoli for the past two seasons, finally decided to move to Chelsea in the summer transfer window this year. Meanwhile, Higuain was at the doorstep of Turin, following the arrival of the Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo. No wonder the two figures are believed to be reunited at Chelsea.
Moreover, the Blues are believed to be eyeing a new striker after being disappointed with the appearance of Alvaro Morata throughout the 2017/18 campaign yesterday. But in the end, Higuain himself decided to join AC Milan. After a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town in the opening match of the English Premier League this season, Sarri expressed his disappointment that he failed to land Higuain to London this summer.
“Higuain? “A little disappointed, but eventually everyone will feel a little disappointment in the transfer market,” said Sarri.
The former Real Madrid player agreed to a loan period at AC Milan for the next season, with a permanent purchase option at the end of the season.
