According to Calcio Mercato, AC Milan are ready to do everything within their power to retain Gonzalo Higuain as he looks increasingly likely to move to Chelsea. AC Milan will let go of the Argentine striker only if he is to publicly make a transfer request.
However, that does not mean that they are not without contingency plans. AC Milan have already lined up potential replacements. Alvaro Morata of Chelsea and Karim Benzema of Real Madrid are all potential targets.
However, the player that Leonardo and Maldini want to bring to the club is none other than Manchester United’s Anthony Martial. The mercurial winger is having a fine domestic season and Il Rossoneri will have to offer United a deal that they simply can’t refuse if they are to prise the Frenchman away in January.
