With the swap of Gonzalo Higuain for Leonardo Bonucci nearing completion, the FC panel discuss whether AC Milan or Juventus get the better end of the deal.

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

Italian media reported that Higuain's transfer had been structured to allow Milan to comply with UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations, which they fell foul of last season.

Bonucci, an 80-time Italian worldwide, only joined Milan last summer after playing 319 games in a seven-year spell with Juventus.

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

Chelsea are known to have a strict policy when it comes to signing players over the age of 30, with concerns over the lack of resale value that the player would hold. "Here at Milan everyone wanted me, and this is why I made my choice to come here", goal.com quoted Higuain, as saying. I like the spirit of this team.

"Overall, I am pleased with the work we have done so far". Everyone wanted me here. "I hope to earn all this trust, I'm very faithful about this new adventure". "This team has a great history and I'm very proud to be here", said Higuain.

Higuain admitted that he had "a few disagreements" with Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri during his two years there.

'I don't have to respond to words, ' Bonucci said.

Higuain made the move to Milan with 24-year-old centre-back Mattia Caldara, and their signings have raised the enthusiasm level among fans - and within Higuain himself.

He told a press conference: "I have a lot of respect for Sarri". We've gone through four or five years where we haven't found consistency. "It gives you goosebumps, it's special stuff", he said.
