Real Madrid are tracking Bayern Munich defender Martin Demichelis.

Bild says Real coach Manuel Pellegrini is keen to be reunited with the Argentina international, who he worked with while in charge of River Plate.

"Manuel and I respect eachother a lot. Years ago I once said I had to play for Real Madrid. I'd love to play with him again," said Demichelis.

"Germany has a special place in my heart because my son was born here. But life in Spain is similar to that of Argentina. The language, climate, people ... I hope someday to play in Spain, but while I have a contract with Bayern I will give 100% for this team."
