Malaga are prepared to DOUBLE Gonzalo Higuain's Real Madrid wages to keep him in Spain.

Higuain is expected to leave Real this summer, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Juventus all making their interest known to his representatives.

However, big spending Malaga are also in the mix and have indicated they're prepared to offer Higuain a deal worth €7 million-a-year - twice what he currently earns, says Marca.

Malaga will make their bid formal should they qualify for next season's Champions League.
