Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain has joined AC Milan from Juventus along with defender Mattia Caldara while Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci has moved in the opposite direction, the two clubs said in separate statements on Thursday. "Everyone wanted me here", Higuain said to reporters during his official unveiling as a Milan player.

But the only person who wanted me there (at Chelsea) was him.

He added: "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".

Here I will take a look at the possible 3 key reasons behind this shock transfer and what it means in the grand scheme of Higuain's overall career.

They weren't happy about leaving and had to be escorted out of the festival grounds in a taxi and patrol auto . On Thursday afternoon, the 29th annual Wacken Open Air festival kicked off in the German town of Wacken.

Argentina worldwide Higuain's arrival has revived enthusiasm around Milan after a troubled period marked by on-pitch embarrassment and financial woes. "All I have to do is to show that the club was right to invest in me". "He is one year younger than me but he has already more than 100 appearences in Serie A".

He was somewhat less prolific after joining Juve in 2016, but still netted 40 league goals in two seasons - as well as winning both the Scudetto and the Coppa Italia in each of his seasons with La Vecchia Signora.

Milan confirmed that Higuain will wear the number nine shirt although it appeared to be handing him a poisoned chalice.

"This is a team that, in my opinion, can achieve great things".

"I worked alongside Allegri for a couple of years", Higuain said. It was one of the biggest motivating factors for me coming here, and he knows I am grateful to him for me coming here.
