Corinthians are planning a shock January move for Real Madrid midfielder Guti. Aware of Guti's bust-up with coach Manuel Pellegrini, which has seen the midfielder frozen out for games against Getafe and AC Milan, Corinthians hope to convince him about moving to Brazil.

Guti has made no secret of his wish to end his career in an "exotic location" and has discussed the prospect of playing in the Middle East or USA.

Gol says Corinthians management are planning talks with Guti about joining former Real teammate Ronaldo for next season.
