Barcelona will make an attempt for Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol at the end of the season.

Albiol is expected to be on the move this summer after failing to nail down a regular first team start.

EcoDiario says Barca chiefs regard Albiol highly and will ask Real about his availability.

There won't be any pressure exerted, however, with the two clubs having a 'non-aggression' pact over transfers. But if there is an opening, Barca would welcome the chance to lure Albiol to the Nou Camp.
