Gonzalo Higuain rules out January exit

Gonzalo Higuain says he has no desire to leave AC Milan in the upcoming transfer window and is focused on helping the side enjoy success on both the domestic and European stage.

Argentina international Higuain arrived at the San Siro on a season-long loan from Italian champions Juventus in the summer and he has enjoyed a good start to life with the Rossoneri, scoring five goals from 10 Serie A appearances.

However, reports are suggesting Milan are looking into the possibility of re-signing former striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a temporary deal in January from MLS outfit LA Galaxy.

The ex-Sweden international won the title and the Supercoppa Italiana during his two-year spell with AC and it is claimed a return could be on the cards in the January transfer window.

Ibrahimovic’s potential move was believed to have angered Higuain although the 30-year-old striker has been quick to rubbish these reports, saying he is only focused on helping the club.

“The coach said I never asked to leave the club, and this says it all about my intentions,” he said.

“I only have AC Milan in my mind and I don’t consider myself the star of this team.”

Higuain is expected to start Milan’s home clash against Parma on Sunday and the hosts are 1.40 favourites to pick up the win, whilst a draw is priced at 4.75 and the visitors are the 8.00 outsiders.

Gennaro Gattuso’s men have failed to win their last two league matches – losing to Juventus before drawing with Lazio – but they have won four of their six league games at the San Siro this season.
