Both AC Milan and Chelsea have given the green light to the move taking place and when speaking to the media yesterday "Blues" boss Sarri was full of praise for the Argentinian with whom he worked in his time at Napoli: “I really rate Higuaín, he's a fine striker and a great person”.

Higuaín and Morata are both struggling in front of goal this season with the Milan striker netting five times in 12 games with Morata also bagging five goals but in 14 games for Chelsea.

The proposal will see both players swapping clubs through to the end of the current season with no money changing hands with the the switch now dependent on Juventus. The Turin based side still hold the player registration for Higuain and are immersed in talks with Milan to offload the forward for a sum of 18 million euro.
