“That day, I had the feeling inside may that maybe something had broken down. And then they signed Ronaldo,” he said. “The decision to leave was not mine. I gave everything for Juventus, I won several titles, after which Cristiano arrived. “The club wanted to make a leap in quality and they told me that I could not stay and that they were trying to find a solution. The best solution was Milan “.
Still, he said there were no hard feelings. “Mine is a feeling of affection because they treated me very well,” he added. “Companions and supporters have given me huge affection. But I did not ask to leave. Basically, everyone says it, they sent me away.”
Higuain, who will take part in his first derby against Inter Milan on Sunday, has scored four goals in his first nine games for Milan. “Milan have given me something more after a World Cup which wasn’t great,” he said. “I found what I was looking for.”
