England-AC Milan head coach Gennaro Gattuso has claimed Chelsea target Gonzalo Higuain wants to leave the club, stating the striker has made his mind up.
“When a player makes up his mind it becomes hard to convince them otherwise,” said Gattuso to the media.
“I have a relationship with him that features great honesty, we say things to one another’s face. At the moment, he’s our player and we’re holding on tightly to him. I don’t know what will happen.”
“I’ve talked to him a great deal but it’s hard to give advice because the career of a player only lasts 13-14 years,” continued Gattuso.
“It’s his mind, not mine. The most important thing is to talk as men, look each other in the eyes and speak the truth.
“I still don’t understand what Higuain’s unhappy about because I see a happy lad, involved in the locker room. We’ll see what happens. If it was up to me, I’d keep him at my house and feed him my dinner.”
