He had been on loan at AC Milan but Juventus cut short that agreement to allow him to complete a short-term deal to Stamford Bridge with an option to buy at the end of the campaign.
Higuain scored his first goals for the Blues in their 5-0 victory over Huddersfield where he scored a brace to boost their chances of a top-four finish.
Romagnoli won't hide his displeasure at seeing Higuain leave Milan but he wishes him all the best in London.
On Higuain's departure, Romagnoli said: “There's no bitterness.
