“When a player makes up his mind it becomes hard to convince them otherwise,” said Gattuso of Higuain.

“I have a relationship with him that features great honesty, we say things to one another’s face.

“At the moment, he’s our player and we’re holding on tightly to him. I don’t know what will happen.”

Higuain is on loan at Milan from Juventus but could seal a move to Chelsea this month.

Higuain had his most successful season under Sarri, equalling the Serie A goalscoring record with 36 goals in the 2015-16 season.

He has scored eight goals in all competitions for Milan this season, having left Juventus following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in July 2018.
