REVEALED: Chelsea choose to send Higuain back to Juventus

Chelsea have decided to send Gonzalo Higuain back to parent club Juventus.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea are not planning to extend Higuain's loan and will send him back to Juventus after the Europa League final.

Higuain has scored only five goals in 21 appearances since arriving in January on a six-month deal.

There is an option to extend the loan for another season for £15.7million or buy him outright for £31.6m.

Juventus do not want Higuain back because he has two years to run on a lucrative contract, but his goal return has been poor in the Premier League and his form disappointing.
