Cassano believes AC Milan would be mad to sell Higuain to Chelsea
Former Italian international striker and AC Milan legend believes that the Rossoneri would be “mad” to let Gonzalo Higuain depart the club, claiming that the Argentine talisman is their “only decent player”.
Milan boss Gennaro Gatusso previously stated on Saturday that he is still unsure about the future of Higuain at the club, amidst rumours linking him with a reunion with Sarri at Chelsea.
The 31-year-old has struggled to hit the ground running at the San Siro on his loan spell from Juventus this season but Cassano believes that the main problem lies with the rest of the squad who haven’t been able to give Higuain enough service.
“For me, it’d be madness to sell Higuain,” Cassano told Sky Sport Italia. “He’s their only decent player, their only champion, and one of the best strikers in the world. I would never get rid of him.
“If Milan want to win something they need their best players – with just their other players they’ll struggle.
“Higuain played for Real Madrid for seven years, there’s a reason for that. If Milan are having problems it’s because they don’t have players who can give him the right ball.
“His movement on the pitch is great, but no one gives him service – that’s why he wants to go to Chelsea.
“He’s having difficulties but he’s not finished. He’s always able to score and make a difference.”
