Chelsea set to benefit from Ronaldo's deal to Juventus

Maurizio Sarri GettyChelsea face yet another setback in their pursuit of Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea are also looking to Juventus to solve some of their defensive problems, with a long-standing interest in centre-back Daniele Rugani, as the Italian coach looks to re-invent a squad that failed to qualify for the Champions League last season.

However, it seems any move for the Argentina global will be hard to achieve, with Higuain's brother and agent insisting that the reports of an agreement between Juve and Chelsea were false.

Higuain worked with Sarri during the pair's respective time at Napoli, and the Italian boss is thought to be keen to work with the striker once again.

Higuain would relish Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival at Juventus, said his brother Nicolas.

The other Nigerian at the club, Ola Aina, and other Chelsea non- World Cup players are expected to resume for pre-season at the club's Surrey Headquarters this weekend.

At the moment we haven't spoken to any other clubs, as we have a three-year contract with Juventus.

Higuain arguably recorded his best personal season at Napoli that year as he netted 36 goals in just 35 Serie A games.

Juventus chose to sell Higuain for the upcoming trip to Turin Cristiano Ronaldo, for whom the Champions of Italy will have to pay a record in the history of the club 100-120 million euros. The former Real Madrid forward has made 73 appearances for Juventus, scoring 73 goals for the club. "Everyone knows his rapport with Sarri is wonderful and he sees him as a football father".

But as far as I know, Sarri hasn't even signed for Chelsea yet.
