Gonzalo Higuain reveals that the reason he joined Napoli in the summer is because he wanted to join "a winning team".
Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has stated that he joined the club last summer as he wanted to be part of "a winning team".
The 26-year-old, who has scored 19 times for the Italian side this season, made the move from Real Madrid for a fee of £35m.
"When a man like Aurelio De Laurentiis spends that much money to have you, you can't help but be grateful," Higuain told Casa Napoli.
"I thank Real Madrid, where I spent seven years and learned so much from players like Van Nistelrooy, Raul and Cristiano Ronaldo, but last summer I realised it was time for a change of scenery.
"When I heard that I was going to leave Spain, I was linked with many sides including Juve, but I chose Napoli and they wanted to build a winning team."
Napoli are currently third in the Serie A table.
