Chelsea rocked as Juventus insists Higuain future at AC Milan

Juventus have ruled out selling Gonzalo Higuain in January.

The Argentine is wanted by Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, who he worked under at Napoli.

Higuain is currently on loan at AC Milan and talks between the three clubs have been held.

However, Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici says a move will not be happening this month.

Paratici said: "He remains one of the best strikers in the world, he showed it in these seasons in Europe, he scored everywhere.

"About his future, I think he's important for AC Milan, he's a great striker and they want to keep him.

"I know very well Gonzalo, he is a simple and passionate guy who lives every situation with great enthusiasm. It can happen even to the best players not to score for four or five games."
