Real Madrid chief Pedja in strategic talks with Standard Liege

Real Madrid are stepping up plans to land Standard Liege midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

Belgian sources say Real sports director Pedja Mijatovic was in Belgium on Sunday and held a dinner meeting with Standard vice-president Luciano D'Onofrio.

Mijatovic expressed interest in signing Fellaini, while it's also understood he sounded out D'Onofrio about Standard becoming a partner club for Real, which would see them send their brightest young players on-loan to the Belgian outfit.
