Gonzalo Higuain On Loan to Chelsea Football Club

Gonzalo Higuain is England bound…

The 31-year-old Argentine professional soccer player has joined Chelsea Football Club on a six-month loan from Juventus Football Club, with the club having an option to make the deal permanent next summer if he proves a success at Stamford Bridge.

“When the opportunity to join Chelsea Football Clubpresented itself I had to take it,” Higuain, who’ll wear the No. 9 shirt, told the Chelsea website. “It’s a team I’ve always liked that has a lot of history, a wonderful stadium and they play in the Premier League, a league I’ve always wanted to play in.

“I now hope I can give back that trust Chelsea have shown me out on the pitch. I can’t wait to start and I hope to adapt as soon as possible.”

Higuain completed his move on Wednesday after he underwent a medical to finalize the details of the loan. The Blues have an €18 million option to extend the loan for next season or €36m to sign him permanently, to be paid over the course of two years.

Chelsea Reportedly Looking to Extend Costa’s Contract

Diego Costa could be getting an extension…

Chelsea Football Club is reportedly preparing to discuss a new contract with 28-year-old Brazilian-born Spanish soccer star, according to Spanish publication AS.

Diego Costa

Chelsea is aware of reports suggesting that the Spain international remains a target for his former employers at Atletico Madrid, with Diego Simeone said to be keen on taking him back to Vicente Calderon.

Such talk was fended off over the summer, amid rumors of Costa being unsettled in England, and Costa has responded in the best possible manner with nine Premier League goals and 12 in total for club and country.

Chelsea reportedly is eager to reward that form with an extension of his current deal, which runs until 2019.
