Manchester City are chasing Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain. The Daily Mail says Roberto Mancini is looking to boost Manchester City's striking options by making a £35million bid for Real Madrid star Higuain.

City are in a three way battle for the Arsenal's Dutch striker Robin van Persie along with Manchester United and Juventus.

And now City are looking elsewhere with executive Brian Marwood keen on a move for Argentine striker Higuain instead.

Higuain has also been a target for Chelsea and Tottenham, but money-bags City have the spending power to blow them away.
