Argentine open to Chelsea move

Gonzalo Higuain agent who is also his father, has said the player would be interested in a transfer to the Blues, if he is not wanted by his current club Real Madrid.

The striker’s contract expires in 2016, but follwoing his injury he now finds himself below Karim Benzema in the pecking order, which had led to rumours that he could make a move away from the Spanish giants.

Jorge Higuain told La Stampa, “If somebody told us we weren’t welcome (at Real) I’m sure we would receive very good proposals, regarding the rumours that say Chelsea and Juventus are interested in my son, the only thing I can say is that they are both two great teams.They would be two important opportunities, but nobody has gotten in touch with me.”

But Higuain did admit that his son doesn’t want to leave, “Nobody at Real Madrid has said anything about wanting to sell Gonzalo and he doesn’t have any intention of leaving, in fact, he wants to continue with Real Madrid until his contract expires in June 2016.”

Since joining Real from River Plate in 2006 he has scored an incredible 81 goals in 142 matches, if he was to move to the Premiership it is expected that he would make a huge impact like his countryman Sergio Aguero has done at Manchester City.
