Rumours are circulating that Real Madrid are also considering making an offer for Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.
The Dutchman, in spite of having been sidelined with an injury for the past six months, has been increasingly linked with a move to Manchester Untied.
Roma President James Pallotta has repeatedly stated that his club will not sell Strootman, but the Roman edition of the Corriere della Sera has reported today of a new name in contention.
The publication asserts that Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid are also looking to join the fray for the 24-year-old.
While no figures have been released as of yet, the publication suggests that Los Merengues would outdo Manchester United's offer.
