Do you think Higuain would have been a good signing for Chelsea?

Higuain, 30, was likely to see his minutes at Juventus reduced in the upcoming season after the Italian champions' signing of Cristiano Ronaldo earlier this summer.

If the 30-year-old can maintain his scintillating club form for Milan this season, Chelsea may rue their failure to impress him - especially as they are not now blessed with a wealth of in-form goalscorers.

"I am happy. They are important players", Gattuso said in reaction to Milan's double signing.

"But the only person who wanted me there was him".

And on Caldara's move to the San Siro, Leonardo told a press conference (via Football Italia): "Bonucci is for now, Mattia is for the future and now".

Richard Keys infuriates Newcastle fans with strong tweet directed at Rafa Benitez
The tweet immediately went down very badly with Newcastle fans, with many taking the time to vent their fury at the 61-year-old. Newcastle begin their league campaign by hosting Tottenham at St James' Park on August 11.

"That is why I chose the Rossoneri", Higuain added. "I hope to earn all this trust, I'm very faithful about this new adventure".

"As for Higuain, I thank him for these two seasons during which he gave his best".

Portugal forward Andre Silva, who wore it last season, scored only two goals in 24 Serie A appearances after a 40 million euro ($46 million) move from FC Porto. "All of them are young players with a great future, who can form a defence for many years to come".

Higuain though said it held no fear for him as he was officially presented by his new club on Friday. "Now, having worn this shirt, I can say it has a very unique taste". I kept receiving texts from my friends but initially I didn't know much about it.

Higuain has now revealed he had the impression Sarri was the only one at Chelsea pushing for his signature. "But only maybe one player", Sarri said. We've gone through four or five years where we haven't found consistency.
