After seeing Arjen Robben and Gonzalo Higuain on the scoresheet against DC United, Real Madrid coach Manuel Pellegrini declared both players not for sale.

"Higuaín's goals does not change his status, he has never been on the transfer-list and will play an important role," insisted Pellegrini.

"Robben? ... Again I repeat: the same story for the team, with Robben, (Wesley) Sneijder, Cristiano (Ronaldo), (Karim) Benzema, Raul ... there's no need to sell any player. There is no fixed name to be transferred. Robben is not for sale."
