Juventus CEO Beppe Marotta has suggested Gonzalo Higuain can leave the club this summer… but Chelsea are yet to make official offer.
Marotta has admitted the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo complicates things with such competition up front, but says no-one has bid for the Argentine.
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.
“He is still an important player for us, but now we obviously have greater competition [up front].
“But he is a professional and we are evaluating his future together with the people who represent him.
“We have a great deal of respect for him.”
Higuain could now link up with new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, whom he worked under while at Napoli.
