Chelsea miss out on Higuain and Caldara as duo join Milan

Maurizio Sarri

Higuain has played under the Chelsea manager at Napoli in 2015-16, where he scored record 36 goals in Serie A.

Juventus forward, Paulo Dybala, has bid farewell to Gonzalo Higuain, as he finalises a move to AC Milan.

Luiz has featured in both of Chelsea's pre-season matches under Sarri, who has started his reign with victories over Inter Milan and Perth Glory.

On the other hand, Higuain moves to Milan in a loan deal worth £16m.

Milan hailed Higuain's arrival as an "important piece of the new era of the club".

"Juventus Football Club announces the return of Leonardo Bonucci after the defender completed his move from AC Milan", the club stated on its official website, confirming a five-year deal for the 31-year-old Italy global.

Juve beat that record this summer by signing Ronaldo from Real Madrid for €100m.

Chelsea remain interested in Daniele Rugani as Sarri eyes more reinforcements.

The Spaniard managed to score just 11 goals in the Premier League last season.

Breaking the deal down into two parts, the acquisition of Caldara to replace Bonucci is arguably the most impressive aspect. Milan's sporting director Leonardo recently discussed the striker's situation with his agent and brother Nicolas in a three-hour meeting.

The swap will also sees 24-year-old defender Mattia Caldara head to the San Siro.

Mario spent the second half of last season on loan in the Premier League at West Ham United and is expected to be on the move again this summer.

Of Sarri's approach, Luiz added: "I love this philosophy. Unfortunately within the market we have to make some choices, and that's what happened".
