After an unsuccessful spell at Stamford Bridge on loan, the the Europa league Champions have opted not to conclude a permanent deal for an experienced Argentine striker
Chelsea have confirmed Gonzalo Higuain has left the club, with the Blues opting not to extend his loan from Juventus or pursue a permanent deal.
Higuain spent the second half of 2018-19 at Stamford Bridge but scored only five goals in 14 Premier League appearances.
The 31-year-old previously hit 36 league goals in the 2015-16 Serie A season for Maurizio Sarri’s Napoli and he will be expected to team up with the Italian again after the coach’s switch from Chelsea to Juve.
Chelsea had the option to pay €18 million (£16m/$20m)) to extend Higuain’s loan for another 12 months, while the Blues could have also purchased the forward from Juve for €36m.
Higuain, who previously signalled he hoped to stay at Chelsea, has been linked with a move to Roma but his brother and agent Nicola tweeted on Sunday that he will not play for a Serie A club other than Juventus next term.
Chelsea announced the exit of five players at the end of their contracts on Monday, with Higuain followed by former captain Gary Cahill out of the club, along with Rob Green, Eduardo and Kyle Scott.
