Gonzalo Higuain's agent confirms Juventus stay amid rumours of exit


The brother and agent of Gonzalo Higuain has confirmed that the Argentine will "respect" his contract at Juventus, shooting down any hopes of a possible move to Roma.


The 31-year-old spent last season playing for AC Milan and Chelsea, with two hugely unsuccessful spells, one ending with a goal drought, whilst the latter ended with the Argentine being in and out of the team.


Whilst Chelsea had the option of making the move permanent after the loan expired, they opted not to, resulting in Higuain going back to his parent club, Juventus.

Higuain was expected to leave Turin at the start of the summer, but ever since Maurizio Sarri became the Juventus manager, who happens to be Higuain's former coach at both Napoli and Chelsea, the Argentine has been granted a glimmer of hope of getting back into the Juventus first team, even though there is immense competition for places there, with a certain Portuguese forward coming to mind.


Higuain's brother, Nicola, took to Twitter to say that "The only Italian club Higuain will play for is Juventus. He has two years left on his contract and it will be respected."


Higuain scored just eight goals in 22 games in all competitions for Milan last season, and he also scored only five goals in 18 games in all competitions for Chelsea.
