Chelsea and Manchester City have been dealt a blow in their attempts to sign Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain.


The Argentinean’s future has been in doubt with his playing time at Los Merengues being restricted this season, leading to reports of the Stamford Bridge and Etihad Stadium clubs lining up bids, according to talkSPORT.


The Blues owner Roman Abramovich was reportedly considering a big money summer bid, with the Citizens expected to follow due to Roberto Mancini’s admiration for the player, but Higuain’s father has dealt a blow to both with his latest comments.


“There is nothing in it. He has four years left on his contract and they love him very much,” Jorge Higuain told Argentine news agency Telam.


The 24-year-old has been unable to oust Karim Benzema from Jose Mourinho’s starting line-up for much of this season, though an impressive goals/minutes played ratio had led to a starting XI recall.


Higuain scored his 100th goal for the Spaniards in the recent win over Osasuna and his father’s comments suggest Chelsea and City may be unsuccessful in any attempt to prize him away from the Spanish capital
