Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo has admitted he would relish the opportunity to work with Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho.
Melo's future is the subject of conjecture, with several clubs believed to be keeping tabs on his situation.
Arsenal have been regularly linked with a swoop, but it appears Real would be front-runners to land Melo, should they make an approach.
Melo told Brazilian Globoesporte : "I don't know anything about the interest of Real Madrid.
"I read of it in the newspapers and if it is true I would be interested, because I am a fan of Jose Mourinho.
"I think he's the best coach in the world.
"What about Arsenal? (Arsene) Wenger is another great coach but there is nothing concrete, just rumours.
"I'm glad to read that there is interest, it means that I have shown my qualities.
"For the moment I have not decided anything, but if I had to leave Juventus I would like to return to Spain.
"The Premier League, however, fascinates me too. It's still a distant dream because I have a contract with Juventus.
"In football things change fast, so we have to wait and see. A return to Brazil? Not now."
