£65m Manchester United & Chelsea transfer target has made his pick on summer move; flying in for talks

Posted by

Supreme hitman Gonzalo Higuain is understood to have made a decision on his future, but appears set to disappoint his Premier League suitors.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea are understood to be keen on the Argentine international—who broke the Serie A scoring record for a single season with his astonishing goal haul this term—but The Sun report that the forward himself prefers a move to France.

Indeed, according to the tabloid, Higuain has flown to the French capital to begin talks with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain about the prospect of a possible move to the club this summer.

28-year-old Higuain—who toppled Gunnar Nordahl’s long-standing record with a goal return of 36 goals this season—could be the ideal frontman to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has been allowed to leave the club after coming to the end of his contract at the Parc des Princes.

Incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will be well aware of Higuain’s impact in Italy and his myriad of qualities, while Jose Mourinho—who has been tipped to replace Louis van Gaal at Manchester United—worked with the Argentine international during their time together at Real Madrid.
