    GONZALO HIGUAIN could end up back in Serie A with Juventus, according to fresh reports that underline his desire to reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo.

    The Portuguese star's first few years at Real Madrid coincided with Higuain and the pair played their part in Los Blancos' lethal attack under Jose Mourinho.

    While the former Chelsea manager is not thought to be in the running to join Ronaldo in Turin as Juve's new coach, the man who is hotly tipped is also a fan of Higuain.

    Maurizio Sarri is reportedly the Old Lady's first choice to succeed Masimilliano Allegri.

    That is despite Blues fans never really taking the Italian to heart during a generally successful season that delivered two major finals and a top-four finish.

    According to Tuttosport, Sarri returning to Serie A this summer would help urge Higuain to do likewise.

    But the bigger draw is Ronaldo, who is named as a favourite colleague of the striker.

    Higuain's time at Chelsea appears to be up after just six months at Stamford Bridge.

    CHELSEA remain in turmoil over their plans for next season.

    The Blues still don't know if they will be banned from buying players in the summer and may have to rely on their current squad being bolstered by youth players and those returning from loan spells.

    Fortunately for the Blues, they sent out a whopping 41 players on loan this season.

    And although Maurizio Sarri said last month that only “two or three” are good enough for the Chelsea first-team, we disagree.

    With the Italian also linked with Juventus, and sensationally threatening to quit if his future depends on a Europa League win, Chelsea have about as much uncertainty around them as any Premier League club.

    Blues legend Frank Lampard continues to be linked with the job after guiding Derby County to the brink of the Premier League in his first season in charge.
