"I am grateful to Catania for all they have given me. As long as I am here, I will always give my best for them," he told the Corriere dello Sport.
"It is a great joy for me to be linked with Milan, as I grew up in Buenos Aires watching Serie A and admiring the Rossoneri. If the interest is real and Catania are open to it, then I feel ready to make the most of this opportunity.
"I like pressure, as that is where you see the real champions. I can do well, have reached my full football maturity and feel that I can take this chance. Replacing a star like Cassano is a responsibility that I would like to shoulder."
