Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain is turning a deaf ear to offers from Chelsea and Juventus. AS says last week an agent representing Chelsea made contact with Higuain's father, Jorge, about the prospect of a move to London - but received little encouragement.

Jorge informed the rep that if his son wanted to leave Real, he'd have to make a public transfer request - which he is unwilling to do.

The same response was given to Juve, though it is Chelsea which has so far be the most aggressive of the two parties.
