Gonzalo Higuain's agent says the striker has not held talks with Chelsea or any other club for a move away from Juventus.

Reports claimed Higuain was set to make a move to the London club but his brother and agent, Nicolas, has denied the Argentina international is set to leave Turin.

The forward has been at Juventus since 2016, when he joined from another Serie A side Napoli and has scored 40 goals in 73 appearances.

Speaking to Sky Italy, Nicolas said: "We are not in talks with Chelsea. He [Higuain] wants to respect his contract with Juventus. It would be great to see Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo playing together again."

Higuain and Ronaldo played together for Real Madrid from 2009 to 2013.

It has been suggested the Portuguese star could be set to leave the Bernabeu with his agent Jorge Mendes reportedly heading to Madrid for talks with Real's president Florentino Perez.
