Chelsea are reviving their pursuit of Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain. The Sunday Telegraph says Fernando Torres scored twice in Saturday's 3-1 win at Sunderland, but his goals came after Marina Granovskaia, Roman Abramovich's personal assistant, travelled to the Spanish capital to sound out Real about Higuain's availability.

Higuain has been a long-term Chelsea target and the prolific 24-year-old Argentinian has struggled to command a regular place at Real under Mourinho.
