Real Madrid want to bring Manchester City midfielder Javi Garcia back to Spain.

El Econimista says Real are planning an end-of-season move for Javi Garcia with Michael Essien due to return to parent club Chelsea, Nuri Sahin now with Borussia Dortmund and doubts persisting over the future of Luka Modric.

Javi Garcia only moved to City in August, but has struggled to settle in England since his arrival from Benfica.
