AS says Spurs have made contact with Real about Di Maria's availability for the summer market.
Spurs chiefs have been left disappointed by Erik Lamela's impact this season and plan to replace him with the Real winger.
The Londoners would fund their bid by selling Lamela back to Serie A at the end of the season.
Di Maria recently penned a new deal with Real to 2018, but his future remains clouded after clashing with fans and failing to nail down a regular start this season.
