Higuian coy over Madrid future

Published Add your comment

Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has refused to be drawn on speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea and Manchester City, with the Argentinian international insisting he will see out the season before deciding on his future.

Higuain remains one of the most feared strikers in Europe despite his long-term injury worries and has found the back of the net twenty times for Madrid this season.

However the 24-year-old has been forced to fight it out with Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo for a regular starting spot in the Madrid attacking line up, prompting speculation he could be set to leave the Bernabeu this summer.

Manchester City have been strongly linked with Higuain ever since the January transfer window while Chelsea are also said to be monitoring developments in Madrid along with Juventus.

The prolific striker found the back of the net in Madrid’s 3-2 win over Real Betis on Saturday, and refused to be drawn on the speculation after the game.

“I am not going to talk about my future. I will devote my attention to Real Madrid for the remaining months of the season and try to do my job to help the team," TalkSPORT report the striker as saying.

With Fernando Torres still struggling for form and Didier Drogba likely to leave in the summer and join former team-mate Nicolas Anelka in China, Chelsea appear short of options in attack and will likely attempt to lure a big name striker to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Rumours this week suggested Edin Dzeko may be making his way out of the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City re-shuffle their attacking line-up, while Sergio Aguero’s future has also been the subject of some speculation.
