Higuain targets to break his own Serie A record at Milan

Higuain targets to break his own Serie A record at Milan

"In total sincerity, the esteem I have for Sarri is huge but he was the only who wanted me", Said the striker.

Higuain's agent and brother, Nicolas, met with Milan technical director Leonardo on Tuesday to iron out details of the deal after being informed by Juve of what figure they would accept.

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.

Gonzalo Higuain explains why he decided against reuniting with Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea in favour of a move to Milan on an initial loan.

Chelsea are known to have a strict policy when it comes to signing players over the age of 30, with concerns over the lack of resale value that the player would hold.

"Here at AC Milan, everybody wanted me". Higuain says he doesn't have any regrets about missing the opportunity to play alongside CR7. I renewed in November and may be able to do it again soon.

"I knew Leonardo before and certain he had a big influence on me arriving", Higuain said.

The closest striker Higuain has come to tasting European success in his career was the 4-1 thrashing at the hands of former club Real Madrid in the 2017 Champions League final, and the Argentina global wants Milan to push for the Europa League. "He convinced me with his words, his faith in me". "Turin is my home and Juventus is my home and I'm happy to be back". "All of them are young players with a great future, who can form a defence for many years to come".

"I spoke with the club about the market but only one time, no more".

However, the 30-year-old believes that Sarri was the only person in west London keen on the move. I hope we can go as far as we can this season. "It gives you goosebumps, it's special stuff", he said.
