Chelsea ready to smash transfer record with £50m+ bid for Higuain

Chelsea are ready to smash their own transfer record with a colossal bid in excess of £50million to capture Gonzalo Higuain, according to the Telegraph.

Following reports that the Blues have already seen a £50million bid rejected by Napoli, the paper is claiming that the west London outfit are preparing to increase their offer in order to get their man.

Jose Mourinho is said to be desperate to acquire a new striker this month, particularly given that none of his current three- namely Samuel Eto’o, Demba Ba and Fernando Torres- have found the net consistently.

The Portuguese boss has worked with Higuain before at Real Madrid and clearly considers him the ideal candidate to ensure Chelsea remain in with a chance of collecting honours come the end of the season.

Given the fact that Napoli only signed the Argentina international last summer and were happy to refuse the Blues’ initial advance, it’s obvious that they don’t want to sell.

For their part though Chelsea remain intent on bringing the 26-year-old to Stamford Bridge, and the expected departure of £25million man Kevin de Bruyne could help to fund the deal.
