The Blues are one club thought to be in the running for Higuain, 30, as they look to offload flop Alvaro Morata to AC Milan in a £62million deal.

On his current logjam, Juve chief Marotta revealed: “Ronaldo is a champion that is recognised by everyone, and it was an extraordinary operation that makes us very proud.

“Higuain? I feel that the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo has created an attack of good quality but also of quantity.

“We will evaluate Higuain’s future with those affected. Milan or Chelsea? No official offers have arrived.
