Norberto Recasens, the agent of Gonzalo Higuain, has insisted that the Argentina international has no intention of leaving Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old is continually being linked with a move away from the Liga champions ahead of the 2012-13 campaign, but his representative has now made it clear that a summer move is not an option for the former River Plate star.

"Gonzalo will not leave Real Madrid. He will remain at the club to fulfil his contract," Recasens stated to Goal.com.

"We had offers from other teams as well, but he will stay at Madrid.

"He is very happy at the club. It's not like he's playing at some third division team. We're talking about Madrid here. Of course, he wants regular first team action, but he's happy here."

Higuain has a contract with Real Madrid until the summer of 2016.
