AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain was asked about rumours linking him with an imminent transfer to Chelsea at the airport.
The Argentina international, on loan at Milan from Juventus, is expected to become a Chelsea player on loan for the rest of the season, according to tweets last night from reliable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Agreement reached between #Juventus and #Chelsea for Gonzalo #Higuain! Loan + buy option for 6 months; it can be extended as loan also for one year more (2019/2020 season) if Higuain will get some steps with Chelsea (caps, goals, team targets). ? #CFC #Chelsea #Juve #Milan

However, when quizzed about his future, Higuain did not appear keen to give anything away.
His quotes are roughly translated as: ‘Were you waiting for me? Chelsea? If you are looking for a mess with me, you will never find it.’

Chelsea fans will hope something can be made official soon as the 31-year-old looks exactly the kind of striker they need to come in as an upgrade on Alvaro Morata at Stamford Bridge.
