Gonzalo Higuain is getting closer to Juventus return, Ilbianconero.com reports. The Argentinean joined Chelsea on loan in the January transfer window and the Blues are not likely to make his move permanent or extend his loan spell for one more season. The 31-year-old can join the Blues on a permanent deal for € 36 million or remain on loan in London for € 18 million but the Premier League giants are not likely to activate any of these two clauses.

Maurizio Sarri pushed to sign Higuain in the January transfer window but the Italian is also on his way out of Stamford Bridge. La Gazzetta dello Sport has reported earlier this week that Sarri is going to be sacked after the Europa League final.

Roman Abramovich, in fact, is determined to give the Chelsea job to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard with Sarri who is likely to return to Italy. The former Napoli boss has been linked with Roma, AC Milan and Juventus and the Europa League final will be his last game in charge of Chelsea. Both him and Higuain want to salute the Blues with a trophy in their hands.
