Stoke boss Hughes unsurprised Real Madrid keen on Begovic

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes isn't surprised Real Madrid are interested in goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

The Bosnian was linked with Real last week.

Hughes told ESPN: 'I'm not sure where the story originates from, but certainly there has been no contact between the clubs.

"But it wouldn't surprise me if there was a modicum of truth in it -- that top teams are looking at Asmir -- because he is an outstanding goalkeeper.

"We are certainly not encouraging it. Asmir is a huge part of what we are trying to do here."
