Argentine striker, Gonzalo Higuain who has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea has opted to stay on in Italy but he has switched from Juventus to AC Milan.

Chelsea were believed to be interested in the striker but they would have to look elsewhere for reinforcement as Higuain will now be playing his club football at the San Siro.

The 30-year-old Higuain is on a one-year loan deal worth a reported 18 million euros ($21 million) that gives them the option to buy the striker next summer for a further 36 million euros.

Higuain left Juventus, where he won two Serie A titles and scored 40 goals in 76 league appearances, following the shock signing of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid that made the Argentine surplus to requirements.
