 Pundit claims AC Milan new boy Chukwueze would have preferred move to Real Madrid

Football writer with the National World Jamie Kemble believes AC Milan's new signing Samuel Chukwueze would have preferred a move to Real Madrid. 

​​Chukwueze was announced as the Italian giants' seventh signing of the season on Thursday having arrived for a free around 20 million euro plus 8 million in bonuses.

​The 24-year-old had earlier been linked with Real Madrid who want to bolster their attacking options after the departure of Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard, Marco Asensio and Mariano Díaz.

He was in devastating form for Villarreal last season and showed glimpses of what he could do when he bagged a brace in the Yellow Submarine's 3-2 win over Real Madrid in April.

Kemble believes the Super Eagles forward would have preferred a move to the Los Blancos if they had a concrete interest in him.

"Still, he will have seen it as a chance to compete for titles, and it's a good move. If Real Madrid were actually at the table, I think that would have been his first-choice move, which is no disrespect to Milan," Kemble told Sempremilan.

"Real Madrid are the biggest club in the world, and Samu could have stayed in Spain where he has been happy for a long time."

​The Nigeria national teamer is expected to occupy the right wing of the attack as the Rossoneri hope to stage a title challenge next season.

​The new AC Milan number 21 will be hoping to make his debut on 21st August when his new club faces Bologna on matchday one of the new Serie A season
