The agent of Juventus striker Amauri has cooled talk of a January move to Real Madrid.

The Italy international has been linked with Real after Gonzalo Higuain was ruled out for six months due to back surgery.

But Amauri's agent Giampiero Pocetta says: "Amauri will stay at Juventus, and if he changes his club, it will not be Real Madrid.

"Of course it's nice to know for Amauri that Jose Mourinho has noticed him, but it's only a rumour."
