Real Madrid are considering a move for Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo.

New Real coach Jose Mourinho is seeking a defensive midfield signing and Melo fits the bill.

Melo cost a whopping €24m last August and the Turin giants would like to recoup as much of that as possible.

A former Almeria star, Melo would welcome a return to Spain after a difficult 12 months in Turin.
