Chelsea boss Mourinho lines up 48 mln-pound bid for ex-Real protegee Higuain

London: Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly lined up a 48 million-pound bid for Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Napoli signed Higuain from Real only last summer for 34.5 million pounds.

However, a leading newspaper reports that the Italian side is now said to be considering doing business as it would give them a quick 13.5 million-pound profit.

Higuain previously played under Mourinho`s guidance when they were both at Real Madrid , the report added.
