Higuain set for Real stay
The father and agent of Real Madrid star Gonzalo Higuain has signalled the intention of his son to see out his contract with the Spanish club.
But according to father Jorge Higuain in an interview on Saturday with La Stampa, Higuain’s first priority is to commit himself to his La Liga club and see out his current deal, which runs until the end of the 2015/16 campaign.
“At Real Madrid nobody has been talking about wanting to sell Gonzalo, and he also does not have any intention of leaving. In fact, the idea is to continue the relationship until his contract expires in June 2016,” Jorge Higuain said.
“If someone told us that we are no longer welcome (at Madrid), I am sure that the offers would not be bad.”
Jorge Higuain described Chelsea and Juve as ‘two great clubs’, but said, ‘in any case they would be two huge opportunities, but no-one has talked to me’.
His son has scored 14 goals in 24 matches in all competitions for Real this season.
