If new reports are to be believed, Spanish giants Real Madrid's Argentine striker, Gonzalo Higuain, may consider a move to the English Premier League with London heavyweights Chelsea, who have long targeted the player.
However, Jorge Higuain, the player's father and agent, has said his son expects to see off his contract, which expires in 2016, with the Spanish club before deciding on the future. Nonetheless, he has not completely dismissed a move to Chelsea in the January transfer window. Incidentally, Higuain has also been linked to Italian Serie A club Juventus.
Jorge, in an interview with La Stampa, said his son's priority was to see off the contract with Real and insisted nobody at the club has spoken to him about moving on from the Spanish capital.
Furthermore, while Jorge labeled both Chelsea and Juventus big clubs and called them big opportunities for his son, added there has been no contact from either club. He stressed that Higuain would continue to perform as well as he possibly could for Real until he was told his services were no longer wanted. In that case, according to a Goal.com report, Jorge reportedly said that both Juventus and Chelsea were not bad options to consider.
Gonzalo Gerardo El Pipita Higuain, who arrived at Real Madrid from Argentine club River Plate in 2006, has made 191 appearances for the club and has also managed to score 92 times.
