Boca Juniors convinced they can land Real Madrid midfielder Gago

Boca Juniors are intensifying their pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder Fernando Gago.

Telam says Boca have received encouragement from Real about the prospect of a loan deal being struck for Gago for 2010.

Gago is desperate to leave Real for regular first team football, despite playing a rare 90 minutes in Sunday's victory over Real Mallorca.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is also keen on the Argentina international.
