Finishing second in goal scoring in La Liga at just 22-years-old is no small feat, so it should come as no surprise that Real Madrid has extended the stay of Gonzalo Higuain.
Having ended the season with 27 goals, second to only Leo Messi's 34, Higuain has signed a new deal that will keep him with Real Madrid through the 2015-16 season. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Higuain is currently with the Argentine national team preparing for its World Cup opener against Nigeria on June 12.
Here are some more transfer stories from Monday:
Tottenham targeting Cole
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has expressed his desire in signing Joe Cole, whose contract with Chelsea expires this summer. Redknapp feels that Cole could be a difference maker with Tottenham, and is eager to talk with the English winger once he returns from the World Cup.
Hunterlaar keen on Milan Stay
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar made just 11 starts in his first season with AC Milan, but the Dutch international is keen on cementing his role with the club. Huntelaar, who has three years remaining on his contract, has been linked with moves to Benfica and Tottenham Hotspur, but he has insisted on proving his worth in Italy before moving to another club.
What do you think of Higuain extending his stay with Real Madrid? Do you see Tottenham being a good fit for Cole? Should Huntelaar go to another club?
