Young Argentinean striker Gonzalo Higuain looks set to extend his stay at Real Madrid after reports on Spanish daily Marca claim the youngster is seen as a key player by new manager Jose Mourinho.

The 22-year-old currently has a contract that will see him with the club until 2013, but discussions have already been made to extend his stay with the club to at least 2016. It is understood that negotiations between the club and Jorge Higuain, the youngster’s father and agent, have gone very smoothly, and that all that remains is the formality of the player’s signature.

Higuain scored 29 goals in 39 matches for Real Madrid in all competitions last season, prompting plenty of interest from clubs around Europe. The striker was attracting particular interest from Manchester City, who look set to be disappointed in their attempts to sign the Argentinean talent.
