Gonzalo Higuain has alerted several big name clubs, including Manchester United, after his contract talks with Real Madrid stalled.

The Argentine striker, who has netted an impressive 29 goals in 38 games, is reportedly on just £15,000 per week and contracted until 2012/13.

Wayne Rooney and John Terry have recently gone on record saying their respective clubs need to strengthen, with strikers a top priority for both.

Higuan scored in Saturday’s 5-1 win over Athletic Bilbao to keep Real in the title race and spoke of his contract talks after the game.

He said: “I'm proud to take the applause from these people who know that in the three-and-a-half years I've been here I have given everything for this club.

“Sometimes I succeed and sometimes it goes wrong, but I'm proud of being able to wear the shirt of this team. I want to continue, but it is not closed,” he added.

Real have been linked with many players over the last couple of weeks with rumours that Jose Mourinho wants to take the hotseat at the Bernabeu.

Chelsea’s Frank Lampard and United’s Wayne Rooney are just two names that have been thrown into the hat with Serio Aguero, currently playing for city rivals Atletico, also interesting Real.
