Real Madrid are chasing Real Zaragoza striker Ricardo Oliveira.

The revelation comes from Gremio football chief André Krieger, who made an approach to Oliveira's minders about the player's availability for next month's winter market.

"The contact was made, but he has no interest in leaving," said Krieger. "He is being courted by Real Madrid.

"He thanked me for my interest, but he wants to stay in Europe."
