Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has denied that his club are chasing Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero, and insists that the press are just trying to unsettle his squad. There is a talk of a possible swap deal for Gonzalo Higuain.

Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuain has been in inspired form for Real Madrid this year, whilst Sergio Aguero's debut season in the Premier League has been very fruitful.

But Mourinho chooses to ignore talk of a swap deal: "The front cover of (newspaper) AS is completely false. If you want me to comment on false front covers then forget it.

"But we are delighted with Higuain. He's scored 24 goals in 20 league games and just remember I was the league's top scorer with 19.

"He is a world-class striker and we intend for him to stay here many years. He arrived here very young and we regard him as a club player. He has always behaved impeccably, whether he plays or not."
