[Gonzalo Higuain on his Napoli ambitions] Cavani will be remembered for all the goals he scored, but I don’t want to be remembered here just for scoring goals – I want to go down in history just like Maradona

[Gonzalo Higuain on Maradona] I want to do what Maradona did: first win the World Cup and then the Scudetto. He triumphed in Mexico in 1986 and, a year later, he made Napoli go crazy. If I could do this it would really be the ultimate dream. I’m going to be a king in Naples

[Partenopei supporters had been left both heartbroken and outraged by the striker’s decision to join the club’s most hated rival. Higuain, though, was unrepentant] I had three good years in Napoli and I understand that the supporters are angry with me. I have seen the insults but this is a choice I made for me. I’m happy to have done it.

[Gonzalo Higuain praises team-mate Paulo Dybala] He reads the game very well. In fact, he sees football the way the great players do, although he’s very young. I hate comparisons, so I say that Dybala must become Dybala, someone who has the potential to be among the best in the world. But he has to be left alone

[Striker Gonzalo Higuain says he can’t wait to get started as he joins Chelsea on loan from Juventus] When the opportunity to join Chelsea presented itself I had to take it. It’s a team I’ve always liked that has a lot of history, a wonderful stadium and they play in the Premier League, a league I’ve always wanted to play in. I now hope I can give back that trust Chelsea have shown me out on the pitch. I can’t wait to start and I hope to adapt as soon as possible

[Gonzalo Higuain explains what qualities he will add to Chelsea’s team] I always try to score goals, it’s something I love to do. And when they don’t go in, I try to help the team in other areas to make sure we win.

I’m someone who is always trying to improve, day after day. I think the most important thing is to be humble, even when we make mistakes, and so when that happens I will always try to rectify that improve

For the rest, I’ll leave other people to give their opinions on me. I’m not someone who likes to talk too much about myself but I’m someone who tries to improve, and get the best out of myself and my team, at every opportunity

[Higuain will see out Juventus contract and could leave in 2021, says player’s father] Everything that’s been said about Gonzalo isn’t true. I can tell you one thing: Gonzalo will stay with Juventus because he still has a year and a half left on his contract and he’ll respect it. He’ll see out his current contract. In 18 months, Gonzalo will decide what to do because he will be the master of his own destiny. This is the reality and what will happen in Pipita’s career, unless other things happen that are unforeseen. But I can guarantee you that, in Gonzalo’s head, there’s no desire to leave Juve, where he is much loved by the fans, just as he loves the Bianconeri, their shirt and their fans

[Gonzalo Higuain speaks with Marca how dealt with missing a big chance in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Final] I was about to stop playing, but my mother told me to keep going. If it was up to me, I would’ve quit football. It’s something I love, but I love my mum more. She said she wouldn’t let me to leave what I love

[Gonzalo Higuain is not sure if he will leave Juventus for River Plate] River are a club that gave me everything, from letting me develop to Real Madrid buying me, but right now I don’t know what’s going to happen. My head is here [in Turin]. [Marcelo] Gallardo’s team are very exciting, they have quality, strength, everything. The truth that you watch them and their number nine gets many chances. Clearly someone who played for River before will watch that team, see themselves there and say, ‘how nice’. Gallardo has caught everyone’s eyes and he’s earned it. I’d think about going back to River to retire

[Gonzalo Higuain admits Lautaro Martinez will find it hard to say no when Barcelona and Lionel Messi call] It’s a complicated situation, as for example when I was 18 years old and Real Madrid came looking, I didn’t say ‘no thanks.’ You just don’t know what can happen. Obviously, I don’t want to create any controversy, but it’s hard to say no when Barcelona and Messi call … I wouldn’t like to be in his shoes right now. Lautaro is in the ascendancy, this is the most exciting part of his career, he is already part of a big team like Inter despite being so young. He has already played in the Copa America, scoring goals, and without doubt has what it takes to become Argentina’s main No.9. Having said that, it all depends on him. We have to see how he reacts to criticism and the strength of his mentality

I decided to go from Real Madrid to Napoli to show everyone that my decision was not wrong. It was a decision made to grow as a player and person, because I think the most beautiful thing for a player is to reinvent himself. I showed myself and everyone that I could do it and therein lies the key, to be convinced of the decisions
