Sevilla full-back Daniel Alves is hoping for a quick resolution to his future after admitting he dreams of playing for Real Madrid.
Alves is looking to quit the Uefa Cup holders and has already been the subject of a failed bid from Chelsea.
Reports suggest Chelsea remain favourites to sign the Brazil international, who has also been linked with Spanish champions Real.
The attack-minded defender, who played against Real in the Super Cup second leg on Sunday, admits he would be tempted by a move to the Bernabeu.
"The player who says that he does not dream of playing for Real Madrid is a liar," Alves told Marca.
"Any footballer would like to play for this club.
"I am no different, but it is a decision that I do not have to take."
Alves also stressed his wish for his future to be sorted swiftly, with the transfer window closing next week.
He added: "It is quite a complicated situation. The sooner it is fixed the better.
"I am worried. The only thing that I want is that it is fixed already.
"I have made it clear that I want to continue growing as a footballer and, if that means leaving Sevilla, then I am sorry because it has been a very special club to me."
