Another transfer rumour to develop in recent days is that we are putting together a double bid for Real Madrid's two Argentines; Gonzalo Higuaín and Fernando Gago. This started with an article in Marca last week, reported upon here. The initial report included Rafael van der Vaart but his name was excluded from later reporting.
I think this one can probably be discounted: City clearly briefed journalists that they had no interest in Gago or Higuaín, and Jorge Valdano said that Higuaín is not for sale. That said, Mancini has expressed an enthusiasm for Gago in the past and I can't see Mourinho being too keen on hanging on to him.
