Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is inviting offers for striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Punto Pelota says Perez wants to sell Higuain to help fund a bid for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

Only this week, the Argentine refused to commit himself to Real beyond this season.

Higuain has been a long-term target for Chelsea chief Michael Emenalo, while he is also admired by Manchester City chiefs Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain.
