AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso has confirmed Chelsea target Gonzalo Higuain ‘has made a decision’ and is ‘hard to persuade him’ to change his mind despite Rossoneri‘s win at Luigi Ferraris last night against Sampdoria in the TIM Cup quarter-finals.
Speaking at a press conference, he said: “I have a relationship with him that features great honesty, we say things to one another’s face. But when a player make a choice it’s hard to convince him [to stay at AC Milan]”
Gattuso added: “I still don’t understand what Higuain’s unhappy about because I see a happy lad, involved in the locker room. We’ll see what happens. If it was up to me, I’d keep him at my house and feed him my dinner.”
It is understood the Chelsea manager would be eager to reunite with the former SSC Napoli striker, who even set a new Serie A record after scoring 36 goals in the 2015/16 season under Sarri’s management.
Higuain, who’s currently on loan from Juventus with an option-to-buy, scored 7 goals from 17 games played in the current campaign so far.
