Real Madrid general manager Jorge Valdano is eyeing Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

Currently sidelined injured, Belgium international Fellaini was in superb form before breaking down in the Merseyside derby against Liverpool earlier this year.

Valdano is convinced Fellaini's physical approach and eye for goal would suit Real's midfield.

The flagging Spanish giants are willing to better the £16 million Everton paid Standard Liege for Fellaini two years ago.
