Spanish media are going mad over Cesena midfielder Marco Parolo, claiming he is wanted by Real Madrid and CSKA Moscow.
There is already a queue of Italian clubs lining up for man who turns 27 this month and has one senior Azzurri cap to his name.
According to Spanish newspaper ‘Sport,’ Real Madrid Coach Jose Mourinho has put Parolo on top of his wish-list for the January transfer window.
They claim several Madrid scouts have been spotted in the stands at the Stadio Dino Manuzzi recently.
However, Real Madrid face competition from Russian giants CSKA Moscow, who are ready to spark a €10m bidding war.
In Serie A he is wanted by Milan, Cagliari and Lazio, so there is no shortage of options for Parolo.
