The superstar's arrival consequently led them to listen to offers for Higuain - who was also attracting interest from Chelsea and their former coach, Maurizio Sarri.

The striker says that at Stamford Bridge only Sarri was driving the deal, while at AC Milan, everyone at the club was desperate to see him sign. The Argentina striker has moved to the San Siro from Juve on a one-year loan deal for £16m, but will cost Milan £32m if they decide to make his loan move permanent.

"But he was the only one at Chelsea who wanted me".

"He's an important player and I think everyone would want him on their team", the stopper said after Sunday's 1-0 win against Barcelona. I want to help get Milan as high as possible. "It gives you goosebumps, it's special stuff".

Bonucci and Caldara swapped teams with each club paying €35 million for the other's player, Juventus said in a statement.

"That is why I chose the Rossoneri", Higuain added. So what motivation could there possibly be for Higuain to make such a shocking move and leave a club where he was winning constantly and so adored by supporters?

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.

"I hope to show to be at his level and to play beside him also for the national team but all these things we will need to prove on the pitch".

"I've played with (Ronaldo) before, but I have no regrets", Higuain said.

"The club decided that I shouldn't continue there and that's made me come to a club which has shown tremendous faith in me".
