Real Madrid are inviting offers for midfielder Julio Baptista.

AS says Baptista has dropped off the first team radar in the second-half of the season and sports chief Pedja Mijatovic has already been given the green light from president Ramon Calderon to find a buyer for the Brazilian.

It's been mooted Mijatovic may use Baptista as a makeweight in a bid for Sevilla's £20 million-rated fullback Daniel Alves.
