Should Higuain decide on a move to Stamford Bridge he will of course be cup tied for the Champions League. Whilst this might be seen as a negative for the player, he would be considered fresh for Premiership games as Andre Villas Boas begins to look to close the gap on the Manchester clubs once again.
Part of the deal regarding Higuain however is that Chelsea cease all interest in Napoli hitman Edinson Cavani though, with Real looking to finance a move for Cavani with any cash raised by the sale of Higuain. Chelsea currently have a host of strikers on their books and although they will lose Drogba to the African Cup of nations, and with Fernando Torres still to find any form worth mentioning, there is room for the talented Higuain.
Talks between the clubs is currently regarding the price of the player which Chelsea do find a little too high at the moment and negotiations on this figure are ongoing with both clubs looking to agree a deal in January for a move next summer.
Real Madrid are reluctant to let Higuain go whilst Cavani is in the Champions League with Napoli and will only agree with possible suitors once a deal with Napoli is also penned down.
