Higuain explains why he turned down Chelsea for AC Milan

first_imgGonzalo Higuain has explained that he decided to go to AC Milan due to their great desire to have him, whereas at Chelsea it felt like only Maurizio Sarri wanted himThe Argentine international had been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge over the past month following Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at Juventus that had deemed him surplus to requirements at Turin.At one point it looked certain that Higuain would be joining his former Napoli boss Sarri at Chelsea for the upcoming season with the Italian coach having been extremely keen on reuniting with the goalscorer for his debut season in English football.But it appears, despite Higuain’s record of 36 goals in 35 Serie A games under Sarri at Napoli, not everyone at Chelsea shared their new manager’s enthusiasm for the 30-year-old.“I have big respect for Sarri but he was the only one who wanted me at Chelsea,” said Higuain, according to the Evening Standard.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“Here at Milan everyone wanted me. That’s why I chose Milan. The motivation and conviction they showed at Milan was fundamental.”Higuain has joined Milan on a season-long loan deal for €18m with the club having the option to make the move permanent next summer for an additional €36m.#GH9 and #MC33 are at Milanello! ????
