Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain wants to end his career at Juventus, according to the player’s agent.
Higuain joined Juventus for a then club-record fee from Napoli in 2016 after a sensational season.
He scored 55 goals for the Old Lady in two seasons at the club. However, he was first loaned out to AC Milan and then Chelsea this past season.
Although he endured a relatively dry spell at the Blues, failing to score goals and break into the first team on a regular basis, manager Maurizio Sarri remained a fan of the Argentine.
Maurizio Sarri and Gonzalo Higuain set to re-unite at Juventus
Now, with Sarri taking up the vacant head coach role at Juventus, it appears he is set to once again re-unite with Higuain.
According to Higuain’s agent Nicolas, the former Napoli star wants to return to Juventus and end his career there. He has no desire to play for any other club in Italy.
“Gonzalo wants to respect his contract and therefore stay with Juventus for another two years. His performances at Juve have been good and playing for another team in Italy isn’t a workable solution.
“I don’t want to disrespect anyone, but if Gonzalo plays in Italy again then he only will for Juve, who own him.
“I think this could be Gonzalo’s year. He has so much strength and determination, and he wants to end his career at Juve.”
It certainly appears that he will return to Juve. Sarri is a huge fan of the player, who particularly impressed during their time together at Napoli, where he scored a Serie A record 36 league goals.
While his form has tailed off ever since then, he remains one of the finest strikers on the planet and a partnership with Ronaldo could prove quite fruitful for the player and the club.
