Higuain left out of Milan squad after ‘poor training session’

While the deals are believed to be nearly done for Higuain to join Chelsea and Milan to replace him with Krzysztof Piatek, the details are not expected to be finalised until at least Tuesday morning.

Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso admitted that the speculation has affected Higuain, confirming that the Argentine would not be in his squad for his side's game against Genoa on Monday.

Former Real Madrid and Napoli forward Higuain has had a hard season in Milan since moving from Juventus to make way for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Speaking last month, he said: "I like him very much". We had a poor training session today due to all these rumours.

"I accept his choice, just as I did with Leonardo Bonucci (wanting to return to Juventus) over the summer". We would wish Morata all the best in the future, and hope that his time at the Wanda Metropolitano brings more success than he found in West London with Chelsea.

Gattuso added: "Right now we have to work with professionalism and determination, all these rumours have not helped us lately and we have to look ahead".

"I am extremely angry, very angry indeed", Sarri opened his assessment through a translator.

Italian and British media have reported that a deal is being set up for Juventus to loan him to Chelsea for the rest of the season. In their season together, Higuain fired 38 goals in 42 games in all competitions at the club.

After that 3-1 loss at Tottenham, Sarri said he thought the players had overcome their problems.

"Then I decide to be focused on the pitch, on matches, on training". "I can not help you". So I don't call her every evening, otherwise I spend all my mental energy on the market.

The impending arrival of the 31-year-old Argentine striker could finally pave the way for Alvaro Morata's exit from the club, with Atletico Madrid his mooted destination. I think it's better if I spend all my mental energies on the pitch.
