Juventus have no plans to keep Gonzalo Higuain at he club in the summer even if Chelsea do not want to buy him, according to reports.

Chelsea have the option to make the striker’s loan deal permanent for a fee of 36million euros, or they can extend it by 12 months for half that fee.

If the Blues decide not to pursure either of those options Higuain won’t be heading back to Turin as he no longer figures in Juve’s plans and they have told the forward his future lies elsewhere.

Reports in Italy claim Chelsea have asked for a discount to sign the Argentine on a permanent deal, which they are unlikely to get as Juve are not willing to sell Higuain for less than 36m.

Chelsea have been hit by a transfer ban but can still land the striker if they move before the end of June.
