However, some local journos believe this could be a strategy by the representatives of Higuain to force, or let Real Madrid know, that a pay rise is in full order. This & the fact that the player would like to receive more playing time, which thus becomes an indirect message to Coach Mourinho. If it is the latter, it may lift eyebrows as Mourinho has been linked to Manchester City in the last weeks as some think - without solid evidence from Mourinho publicly - that he may leave Real Madrid at the end of the season. Still pure speculation to date.
Either way, it is just rumour & may be "dirty rumour", to which I would sit back & enjoy the rest of the Spanish Football League season & see what occurs in summer, if anything.
