Real Madrid are rivaling Liverpool for Bayer Leverkusen for midfielder Emre Can.Liverpool are willing to meet Can's buyout clause - mooted to be £11 million - but has so far struggled to agree personal terms with his representatives.

Radio Marca says Real have also made a move for Can, with coach Carlo Ancelotti concerned about his long-term midfield options.

Can, however, would be concerned about his first team chances at the European champs when compared with Liverpool.
