Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has played down suggestions that Gonzalo Higuain is set to join Napoli.

Reports proposed that the Argentine striker had agreed to join the Italians for £30million but Ancelotti has dismissed those claims following his side's 6-0 friendly win over Bournemouth at Dean Court on Sunday.

"Not true, I don't have any news about this," said Ancelotti.

"I think that now we have to speak about Higuain as a Real Madrid player. He is a fantastic player and a fantastic striker who took one minute to score tonight.

"I spoke to him this week. He is a Real Madrid player and until we have news we have to consider him as a Real Madrid player and I would like him to stay with us.

"He is very important to us and nothing else - it is not my business to judge the price of a player."
