Gonzalo Higuain’s Start to Life at Milan
In recent years, Juventus have been by far the best team in Italy. The Bianconeri have been ruling the country for the last few years. Gonzalo Higuain was a key part of the club’s success, scoring 55 goals in 105 appearances for them. The 30-year-old proved to be a great player, though the Italian champions made it clear that due to the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, Higuain was no longer needed at the club.
The former Napoli man had a good start to life at AC Milan, scoring seven goals in 14 appearances in all competitions, proving to be a key player at the club. He is certainly one of the best in Milan’s squad. Fueled by anger and passion, the striker made it public that he wants to gain revenge on Juventus and show them that they made a mistake in letting him go. His ‘revenge’ isn’t going according to plan.
Higuain is certainly a positive impact on the squad, though he had his ups and downs. The attacker finished the month of November without scoring a single goal, he also missed a penalty against Juventus and got a red card during the game. Reports of him being frustrated have emerged, claiming he is unhappy in Milan. It was also reported that he wants a return to Juventus; these rumours have turned out to be false.
In general, Gonzalo Higuain is having a decent time at AC Milan. The former Real Madrid man wants to stay with the Rossoneri as long as possible and to make history with the club. He is currently on a €18 million loan with a €36 million option to buy. Milan are currently struggling financially but Higuain’s permanent signing is crucial for the club. The fee is likely to be paid as the two time Serie A winner looks to become a legend in another Italian club.
