Chelsea Have Huge Bid for Striker Rejected
Sometimes you pick up on a piece of transfer speculation and it leaves you startled.
This morning (Sunday) just that has happened.
Lurking in the media, courtesy of the Italian news vehicle, Tuttosport, is the suggestion that Chelsea are looking towards the Argentine striker, Gonzalo Higuain to ease their striker crisis.
Furthermore, our referenced source is suggesting that Chelsea have offered a whopping £88 million for the Juventus striker.
Now my opening gambit in this article mentioned a piece of transfer speculation leaving you startled, this piece does for two reasons:
1 - Does anyone seriously believe that Chelsea would offer that kind of a fee for somebody who is 30-years-of-age at their next birthday.
2 - If the bid was genuine, would Juventus not have snapped our hands off taken the money and invested it?
Your thoughts on the above would be most appreciated in our comments facility beneath this article.
