Santos midfielder Alan has revealed he has an offer from Real Madrid.

Real want to sign Alan initially for their Castilla squad this season.

"I received the offer before the game against Barcelona, they watched me in three games in a row when I played as a starter against Portuguesa, Coritiba and Crac," Alan told Globo Esporte.

"I am very happy, I am a reserve player and Real Madrid are interested in me.

"It's of a course a dream, but it's in God's hands. If I have to go now, I will. If not, I can go later."
