Gonzalo Higuains agent has appeared to rule out the Argentine extending his stay at Chelsea and says the striker wants to see out his contract at Juventus.

The 31-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge on loan in January when he ended a six-month loan spell at AC Milan.

Higuain was offloaded by Juventus following the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer and the Old Lady hoped Chelsea would take up their option of extending the Argentines stay at Stamford Bridge by a further 12 months.

However, the former Real Madrid star scored just five times in west London and Maurizio Sarris impending departure – as well as a transfer ban – is set to end his time at the club.

And Higuains brother, who also acts as his agent, has dismissed reports that his client could join Roma and says he will return to Turin.

Gonzalo wants to respect his contract and therefore stay with Juventus for another two years, said Nicolas Higuain.

His performances at Juve have been good and playing for another team in Italy isnt a workable solution.

I dont want to disrespect anyone, but if Gonzalo plays in Italy again then he only will for Juve, who own him.
