Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has been linked with a move to the Premier League next season as Chelsea and Manchester United look to sign him for the next season.
United have been looking to boost their attack next season while Chelsea have been looking to acquire his signature with incoming boss Antonio Conte looking out for the player as a possible replacement for Diego Costa next season.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to be United’s first signing this summer, Higauin is said to be Mourinho’s second target for the summer. According to reports from Italy, Higuain wanted to release clause to be lowered from £73.7m to £47m, so as to enable a move out of Italy.
Reports suggest that Mourinho is keen on signing the player and he met Higuain’s brother who acts as the player’s agent two months ago, so as to negotiate a potential move for the player, who is in contract with Napoli till 2018.
