Tottenham Hotspur have failed in an attempt to lure Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain to White Hart Lane, the
Higuain is said to be also interesting Chelsea and Manchester City but it is Harry Redknapp who has made the first move, offering the Argentinean the chance for regular first team football, something which is not guaranteed at Spanish champions.
Spurs have been rebuffed, however, as the Mail adds that Higuain would rather stay in the Spanish capital and fight for his first team place. Last season Higuain had to compete with Karim Benzema to be the lone striker in Jose Mourinho’s side, but still scored 26 goals in 54 appearances as Madrid romped past Barcelona to be crowned champions.
The 24-year-old Higuain has been at Madrid since January 2007, moving from River Plate, where he made 47 appearances and scored 20 goals. In total in his Madrid career, the France-born forward has 103 goals in 220 games.
