There is also confusion as to who is representing the player, as some reports in Spain have suggested that Geremi has departed agent Lucidio Ribeiro's stable.
Whether the player is agent-less or not, it does now look as if a move to Teesside is on the cards.
Within the last 48 hours, Boro agreed a season-long loan deal with Real and are now looking to bring the player to England.
Neil Sang, who works with Ribeiro, revealed that Boro have been in touch.
"Middlesbrough have confirmed their interest," said Sang.
Geremi, however, is not making life easy for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit - who are desperate to get him off their wage bill.
The player is still sorting out contractual details with the European champions, before he jets to England to seal his transfer to Boro.
