Gonzalo Higuain has vowed to prove that he is worth a place in Real Madrid's new look line-up and is aiming to forge himself a spot in Diego Maradona's team for the World Cup finals.

The Argentinian forward was rumoured to be one of the players that could leave the Bernabeu at the beginning of the summer as the club sought to sign several big money names.

New general manager Jorge Valdano has dismissed the speculation though and has stated that his compatriot has a bright future at Madrid and wants him to play regularly.

"I want to prove he isn’t wrong. My contract ends in 2013 and I would like to stay," Higuain told the club's official website.

"I am very happy because I’ve had a positive experience, winning three titles and coming close to winning La Liga this year. I’ve gone through different stages. I played a lot this season and I felt great, but I know next year will be tough.

"I am young and I still have a lot to learn. I’ve played 100 games with Real Madrid and I want many more because I always aspire to break every record."

Despite impressing with Madrid, Higuain has yet to be called up by Maradona to play for Argentina and has vowed to ensure that the situation changes.

"I will work hard for that. I dream about playing for Argentina. I think about it all the time. It’s the country where I grew up," he continued.

"I felt something unique when I heard the national anthem against Guatemala [in a February 2008 friendly in Los Angeles]."
