Chelsea face stiff competition for Real Madrid striker Higuain

Chelsea face competition for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Talk is sweeping across Europe that Real are prepared to sell Argentine Higuain in January.

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas rates the striker highly and is being linked with a bumper bid for the 24 year-old, while Juventus are also keen.

Meanwhile, Higuain's former club River Plate have also thrown their hat in the ring, though intermediaries concede it is a long shot given the prices mentioned.
