Chelsea have made a bid for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to a report in the Spanish media.
The bid, which is reportedly around £34million, comes on the heels of Chelsea offering a bid of £20million for Wayne Rooney on Tuesday.
Higuain has told his closest advisors that “Mourinho wants me there,” as reported by AS newspaper.
If Higuain joins Chelsea, the 25-year-old Argentinian striker will be manager Jose Mourinho who coached the player while he was at Real Madrid.
Higuain has been one of the hottest transfer stories this summer with Arsenal reportedly very close to signing the player, while Napoli have come in with a late bid. Plus there were reports that Real Madrid were trying to do a deal with Tottenham to bring Higuain to White Hart Lane.
