Higuain admits snubbing Chelsea to join Milan

Higuain comes clean about reason to join Milan despite Chelsea's interest

August 3, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
The Argentine ace had a few words for his former team and its supporters once his transfer to the rossoneri was confirmed.

One of the most talked-about deals in the current transfer window was the one that saw Gonzalo Higuain joining Milan. Speaking at the press conference where he was officialized as a rossoneri footballer, Higuain admitted the reasons why he chose not to join Chelsea despite Maurizio Sarri's interest to have him around.

This is a project that really motivates me, and I hope to give back some of the trust the team's execs have given me. At Chelsea, the only one that wanted me there was Sarri. Here, everyone wants me around. It means a lot to me to be part of a historic team," Higuaín stated.

The player, joined by Mattia Caldara, show off their new jerseys at Milan's official store.

The Argentine striker named Leonardo as crucial to see this deal done, and he tried to offer Juve fans an olive branch after his swift departure.

"I spent some good moments at Juventus, I will always have fond memories of that club. I want to thank bianconeri fans from the bottom of my heart for all their support," Higuain added.

Before the presser concluded, a reporter asked him if he, as Mattia Caldara said, was going to regret not being able to play with Cristiano Ronaldo. According to Higuain's words, there seems to be no doubt in his mind on how he made the right choice.

"No, I won't regret that, I have already played with him at Real Madrid," Higuaín concluded.
