Barca star Leo Messi recently admitted he would love his Argentina team-mate to join him at the Nou Camp this summer.

However, Higuain has signalled his intention to stay at the San Paolo stadium.

The 26-year-old said to www.tuttomercatoweb.com: "I am really grateful to Leo (Messi) for his kind words but I have a contract with Napoli that makes me very happy.

"The Partenopei club (Napoli) has always treated me very well since I arrived there."

The South American moved to Italy from Real Madrid last summer and scored 17 goals during his debut season in Serie A to help Napoli finish third in Italy's top flight.

Higuain, who almost completed a move to Arsenal last season before signing for Napoli for a club record £34.5million, still has four years remaining on his contract.

He is currently competing at the World Cup for Argentina and is expected to start in Wednesday's semi-final game against Holland in Sao Paulo.

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
