Gonzalo Higuain has dropped a massive hint that he could still be at the club next season.
The Argentine forward is currently on loan to Chelsea until the end of the season from Italian giants Juventus.
Chelsea however, have the option to sign Higuain on a permanent basis ahead of next season for a fee in the region of £31m.
As quoted by The Metro, Higuain says that he still wants to win the Champions League, but needs to get there with Chelsea first.
“Obviously there have been some disappointments with my country, because we have not had luck in the World Cup.”
“But with my clubs I’m very happy with my career. Playing in the three best leagues in the world – Italy, Spain, England – is not within the reach of many players.”
“So I’m very proud of that. Personally I am satisfied, but I still have a dream to win the Champions League. It’s the missing one for me. But I can’t think about winning that yet. First we have to get there. It’s very important for Chelsea to be in that competition next season.”
Higuain has only scored three goals in nine appearances and his overall forward play has been sub-par. He has looked sluggish it will be a huge concern for the coach with the team competing for a spot in the Champions League.
Olivier Giroud has been second-choice all season and has been underutilized by Sarri, who has stubbornly stuck to his football philosophy regardless of the results. Eden Hazard also has had to take up the responsibility of leading the line but the ‘false nine’ experiment has rarely worked with the Belgian. It is clear that the team needs more time to fully adapt to Sarri’s style and that is one thing that the club has not granted to their managers.
