AC Milan coach Gattuso urges Higuain to reject Chelsea

AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso admits he doesn't want to lose Gonzalo Higuain.

On-loan from Juventus, Higuain is now in talks with Chelsea.

"If Gonzalo wasn't training the way I like to see, then I would not have made the decision to use him in the squad against Sampdoria," assured Gattuso ahead of their Coppa Italia tie with Sampdoria.

“There is gossip around him at this moment, but seeing the way he trains, the effort he puts in and the professionalism with which he treats me, you wouldn't know.

“The rest is down to his brother, his agent and Leonardo. I hope Higuain remains as long as possible, but if that doesn't happen, then we'll see. As long as he is here and continues to behave with this level of professionalism, it won't be a problem for me."
