Real Madrid are eyeing Manchester United contract rebel Ravel Morrison. The Sunday Sun says Real have been in touch with Morrison's advisors through an intermediary to find out how much he would cost, and whether he would be interested in going to the Bernabeu.
Newcastle United have had one bid turned down and are expected to table an improved offer this week for the £1million-rated forward, who has been cast aside by Sir Alex Ferguson for "unrealistic" contract demands.
A source close to the player said: "There is interest from Real, but Ravel hopes a deal can be done to Newcastle. They are a very big club and it would give him the chance to train with a Premier League first team every day, and possibly get first-team football."
