Real Madrid push on with Van der Vaart bid

AS says while Real wait for developments over their pursuit of Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo, they are drawing up plans to offer between £4-6 million for Dutchman Van der Vaart, who is inside the final year of his Hamburg deal.

A Real source said: "Hamburg knows that next year they can only charge £750,000 for the sale of the lad, so if they accept this proposal they will earn a capital gain of £4-6 million. It would be a good deal for both sides."
