Gonzalo Higuain feels Napoli is the perfect place for him to showcase his ability following his move from Real Madrid.

The Argentine switched to the Stadio San Paolo in the summer for a fee of €37.5m as the Azzurri replaced Paris Saint-Germain bound Edinson Cavani.

“President Aurelio De Laurentiis convinced me very quickly,” the international told Cadena Cope. “I am grateful for the seven years in Madrid, but in Napoli I have an affection that every player needs.

“Everything is better when you have the absolute confidence of your teammates, the directors and the club. I am very happy here.

“In Madrid I had many years at a high level, but I constantly had to prove something that I had already demonstrated.

“I needed a change of scenery and new challenges, a chance to look for new things in my life. It is an important challenge – I want to take Napoli to the top!”

Higuain added that he had already considered a Madrid exit 12 months before it actually happened.

“The day we won the League in 2011-12, there was a change in my mind. The stadium sang for me to stay and in the end I continued for another season.”

The man born in 1987 has scored six goals in 12 games for the Azzurri so far.
