Juventus playmaker Miralem Pjanic is set to hold crunch talks over his future in the coming weeks.
The Bosnian is a key man for the Turin side, and has been benched just twice this season.
Zinedine Zidane, who holds a lot of power at the club after winning a record-breaking three Champions Leagues, is understood to be extremely fond of Pjanic.
But Juve are keen to keep hold their man, who is thought to be open to a move away from northern Italy.
Reports suggest the Italian club will demand nearly £70m for his services, after he signed a contract extension less than 12 months ago.
But should Real complete a deal for Pjanic, that could spell the end of Toni Kroos’ stay in the Spanish capital.
The 2014 World Cup winner has spent nearly five years with Los Blancos, helping them to dominate the European football scene.
But his time could be up at the club, with Manchester United seriously considering bringing him to Old Trafford, according to the Sun.
The Red Devils are long-term admirers of the experienced German, and came close to signing him when he was still at Bayern.
However, he opted to go to La Liga at the time; although he is now understood to be keen to try his hand in the Premier League.
According to reports, United chief Ed Woodward would have to put up £50m for the midfield maestro.
But with the Old Trafford bigwig ready to splash the cash this summer, spending that fee on Kroos, 29, appears to be a good bit of business.
However, they could face competition from French champions PSG, who are lining up a £68m summer bid of their own.
