Manchester City could reportedly contest Chelsea for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain during the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old Argentina international has scored 21 goals in 38 appearances for club and country this term, but often finds himself overlooked by Jose Mourinho in favour of Karim Benzema.

Chelsea have been frequently linked with a move for Higuain as doubts remain over the respective futures of Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres at Stamford Bridge.

However, it would appear the Blues may have been joined in their pursuit of the former River Plate forward by Manchester City, and a summer bidding war could now ensue.

According to the Daily Mail, Real Madrid believe City are in pole position to sign Higuain, while Los Blancos are interested in Argentine forward Sergio Aguero.

The likelihood of City selling Aguero, though, would appear to be slim with the former Atletico Madrid hitman having been in free-scoring form during his first season at the Etihad Stadium.
