The Argentine international joined Milan on loan as the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus saw him drop down the pecking order.

Higuain reportedly attracted interest from Chelsea, with Maurizio Sarri wanting linking up with striker who he worked with at Napoli,

The 30-year-old has now revealed that Sarri was the only person at the Blues that showed a lot of interest.

"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.
 
"Instead, here at Milan, everyone wanted me, and this is the most beautiful thing you can hear as a player, that feeling that they really want you. This is why I made my choice to come here."
 
 
Do you think Higuain would have been a good signing for Chelsea? Let us know in the comment section below.
