Arek Milik: I always had a dream of playing for Juventus

Arek Milik has no regrets joining Juventus.

The Poland striker is on-loan at Juve from Olympique Marseille.

“I feel really good with the Juve jersey on my back," Milik told Meczyki while on international duty with Poland.

“I told my agent not to bother me unless there was a concrete offer, so after Marseille-Nantes he called and said Juve were interested. He flew out for talks and that was the first time I knew there really was something there more than just general contact.

“The choice did not take long, as it was always my dream to play for a club like Juve. I wanted a top team since I was a little boy and we can count the number of truly big clubs on the fingers of just two hands.

“I took the opportunity and after all had nothing to lose."

He also said, “It's true, I was close to joining Juve in the past, but the two clubs need to reach an agreement.

“At the time, there was no deal and so I didn't go to Juve. Napoli also rejected an offer from Roma, who were offering more money. It was their decision and I respected it. I'm happy that I have the chance now to play for Juve, as it's an honour to be at such a big club.

“The fun thing is that every time I seemed close to joining Juve, Wojciech Szczesny would call me. I don't know how he found out about the transfer, but when he called, nothing had emerged in the media yet."
