Higuain keen on Real extension

Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain believes his long-term future is at the Bernabeu. The 22-year-old had been expected to leave the Spanish capital last summer when Real signed the likes of Kaka, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, but opted to remain with the club and has blossomed in the last few months. He is the club's top-scorer having already found the net 12 times in La Liga this season to bring his total tally for the club to 46 goals in 113 appearances. Reports suggest that Real are willing to offer him a new long-term deal which would tie him to the club until 2016, with Higuain saying: "It would be a very big dream to stay here for a long time. "I am very happy and I would love to stay here many years, but that is something that my agent, who is my father, is dealing with and, even though I am keeping up to date with it, I am focused on the matches. "You earn a new deal playing on the pitch and scoring goals."
