Real Madrid midfielder Fernando Gago is being linked with a return home to Argentina.

AS says Gago's former club, Boca Juniors, wants to re-sign the midfielder ahead of the January transfer window.

Real management are open to the prospect and would consider a swap deal involving young Boca fullback Ezequiel Munoz. Real have first refusal on Munoz as part of the original agreement that took Gago to Madrid.
