Higuain targets to break his own Serie A record at Milan

As part of the deal defender Leonardo Bonucci has sealed a return to Turin As part of the deal defender Leonardo Bonucci has sealed a return to Turin

Higuain in the process turned down a transfer to Premier League side Chelsea and he recently revealed why.

The Argentina global striker is joining the Rossoneri from Juventus in an eye-catching swapping of two big Serie A clubs; he has signed on a season-long loan deal worth €18m, with an option to buy set at €36m.

"I want to make the fans happy, as well as the club that put their confidence in me".

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

I have been playing in Europe for 12 years, Milan was the team that struck me the most, it's what the player wants to see: History, lots of green, pure football. "We had differences, but that did not result in me coming here, just the motivation Milan showed me".

Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci went the other way after just one underwhelming season at Milan, swapped for promising Mattia Caldara. The Rossoneri have the right to buy Higuain for EU36 million euros at the end of the campaign.

Higuain also said Leonardo, only hired by Milan a week earlier, made a major impact on his decision to join Milan. "It gives you goosebumps, it's special stuff", he said.

"Although Juventus is now in charge of the titles, one knows and feels that Milan is one of the strongest clubs".

Milan are trying to bounce back after a troubled spell following the sale of the club to Chinese owners in April a year ago, but poor performances on the pitch were compounded in recent months by fears over their financial survival.

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