CHELSEA, Sarri throws a triple thinker: "I'd like to keep HIGUAIN next season"

Asked about 31-year old Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuain's poor impact on Chelsea and Premier League, Blues manager Maurizio Sarri (in the pic on the left with El Pipita, back in April 2016, during their shared Napoli course), stated: "I think Gonzalo needs to improve, of course, both physically and mentally, in order to get fit to Premier League, something that's not easy for anyone. He's definitely up to the task, and he'll be surely pivotal in the last part of the season. I'd really like to have him at our disposal next season as well, but that will be up to the club and to Juventus, and things about all of that are not clear yet". Sarri's last sentence is kind of a triple thinker, almost a riddle, since A) Sarri is rumoured not to be confirmed on Blues head position for 2019/20, B) Club leaders seem to have already offloaded Higuain too, C) Chelsea are at the time market-blocked, because of FIFA sanction.
