Real Madrid are on red alert over Carlos Tevez's transfer demand at Manchester City.

The Sunday Mirror says Spanish giants Real Madrid will head a host of top ­European clubs desperate to ­acquire his services.

However, Tevez hopes that he can return to Buenos Aires to play for Boca Juniors and be with wife Vanesa and daughters Florencia and Katia.

Real Madrid were rebuffed when they made a move last summer, but there will be a queue of clubs ready to offer him an escape route if City allow him to leave.
