Arsenal, Chelsea, Juventus: Jovetic, Higuain. Ongoing transfer saga take yet another twist with Chelsea looking to sign both the players. With Chelsea’s money power, all Arsenal and Juventus can do is just sit back watch the stealing process.
This is actually a clever move by new Chelsea boss José Mourinho to prevent Arsenal from getting their targets. Chelsea has done this in the past too when they stole Mata who was linked with Arsenal for a longer period before his transfer. Even if Chelsea don’t want both the players, they will definitely raise the transfer value of both the players in the market.
Just few days back, Everything looked fine. Jovetic to Juventus and Higuain to Arsenal looked almost done (at-least what the tabloids said). Now imagine if Chelsea interfere in Jovetic deal, Fiorentina may raise their asking price, which means Juventus will be forced to comeback for Higuain. Since Jose Mourinho already worked with Higuain, it’s highly possible that he wants him at Chelsea next season. Higuain will be a direct replacement for Torres or Ba as one of the two is expected to leave this Summer. Ohhh!!! This is Complex!
Whatever happens, it looks like poor Arsenal will be left alone in this transfer saga as they constantly waste time by saying “We are not afraid to spend big” … when all other clubs are acquiring their targets.
