Rumor Mill: Gonzalo Higuain's Agent (And Father) Says His Client Is Not Headed To Chelsea

I was going to write a piece on how it was rumored that both Chelsea and Juventus were interested in El Pipita -- but it seems that Jorge Higuain has put those two rumors to bed.

As we discussed in other posts, it would be foolish to let one of our only two strikers head out -- unless someone else is coming in; however, that is not likely to be the case, according to Jose Mourinho's comments to the press.

Here's what Pipita's father, who is also his agent had to say about the rumors.

"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," he explained, although he added that should Madrid declare his son surplus to requirements, there would be no shortage of suitors.

"If someone told us that we are no longer welcome [at Madrid], I am sure that the offers would not be bad," he continued.

His dad is right--if he were to be in the transfer market, I don't think he'd have a lack of choices. While he's a rotating starter here, he'd be a first selection striker on other teams. It just so happens that he plays for one of the biggest clubs on the planet.

Just a reminder, don't forget to vote in our end of the year awards!

The polls will be open until Wednesday night.
