Higuain settles in with Mate tea on first day of Chelsea training as he vows to adapt to Premier League 'as soon as possible' to earn permanent transfer

The striker was confirmed as a Blue last night following a day of medicals and contract talks at Cobham.

Unfortunately for Chelsea fans, Higuain was not registered in time for tonight’s Carabao Cup semi-final second-leg clash against Spurs.

But he has already been settling in ahead of a potential debut against Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup this weekend.

And Higuain looked right at home as he sipped Argentine tipple Mate in a photo alongside Marcos Alonso and Willy Caballero.

Blues supporters will be hoping the tea can help Higuain fire home the goals Maurizio Sarri desperately needs.

And the player himself is hoping to make an immediate impact as he looks to seal a permanent transfer from Juventus in the summer.

Higuain said: “When the opportunity to join Chelsea presented itself I had to take it.

“It’s a team I’ve always liked that has a lot of history, a wonderful stadium and they play in the Premier League, a league I’ve always wanted to play in.

“I now hope I can give back that trust Chelsea have shown me out on the pitch. I can’t wait to start and I hope to adapt as soon as possible.”
