AC wanted me more than Chelsea, says Higuain

AC wanted me more than Chelsea, says Higuain”

Both AC Milan and Chelsea emerged as the frontrunners to sign the player, but at the age of 30, there were some concerns about a potential move to Stamford Bridge.

Higuain left Juventus, where he won two Serie A titles and scored 40 goals in 76 league appearances, following the shock signing of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid that made the Argentine surplus to requirements.

"The esteem I have for Sarri is great, but the only person who wanted me at Chelsea was him", Higuain told reporters at his Milan presentation on Friday.

"However, choices have been made and we have other players who are just as good, so we'll play to the maximum, even without him".

Talking about his new team, Higuain said that Milan struck him the most as they have all the qualities that a football player would like to have in his team.

Milan were believed to be interested in the 31-year-old, but Gattuso explained financial restraints meant any deal was impossible.

The Rossoneri, sixth in Serie A last season, acquired the pair from Juventus on Thursday as part of a deal that included Leonardo Bonucci returning to his former club.

"A new adventure begins", said Higuain after undergoing his medical.

Gonzalo Higuain of Juventus FC celebrates at the end of the serie A match between FC Internazionale and Juventus at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on April 28, 2018 in Milan, Italy.

"Then, I am sure they will help us to have an important season".

"As far as we are concerned, we come from a very hard time in our club". Higuain says he doesn't have any regrets about missing the opportunity to play alongside CR7.

"We had several offers, four or five. It gives you goosebumps, it's special stuff".
