Real Madrid prefer to send Javi Garcia to Depor over Atletico

Real Madrid have made contact with Deportivo La Coruna about taking midfielder Javi Garcia.

Marca says Real are eager to 'park' Javi Garcia at Deportivo in order to avoid negotiating a move to city rivals Atletico for the youngster.

Real are happy with the offer made by Atletico, but are reluctant to see Javi Garcia playing at the Vicente Calderon, particularly after losing Jose Antonio Reyes to their rivals this week.
