Real Madrid could be tempted to make a move for Hannover midfielder Szabolcs Huszti after the Hungarian impressed during a recent friendly.
Hannover won the game 3-0, and Madrid coach Bernd Schuster praised Huszti's contribution after the game.
And, with Madrid still on the lookout for a left-sided midfielder, the player's agent - who is a friend of Madrid's sporting director Predrag Mijatovic - believes Huszti could secure a dream move to Spain.
"I know that Real Madrid's targets are big name players like Kaka or Arjen Robben, but so far they haven't found the right player for their left side," Filipovic Vladan told Nemzeti Sport.
"After the game, the Real Madrid coach praised him and said Szabolcs Huszti had caught his eye, so it's not nonsense to talk about this possibility.
"I've known Predrag Mijatovic for a long time, so I can call him in a case like this - and I will do so.
"The best bargains can be reached through good and unexpected ideas."
Van Nistelrooy impressed
And Huszti says that his team-mate Arnold Bruggink spoke to Madrid's Ruud van Nistelrooy, who revealed that he was keen to link up with the Hungarian at the Bernabeu.
"Arnold Bruggink mentioned after the game that his former team-mate, Ruud van Nistelrooy, asked about the guy who played in the number 11 jersey," Huszti told Nemzeti Sport.
"My team-mate told him my name and then Van Nistelrooy said that, with Szabolcs Huszti, he'd surely score more than 20 goals per season because my crosses were so good.
"These and Bernd Schuster's post-game words were music to my ears, but that's all.
"It was just a friendly game, so it wasn't only about the final result, but we played equally to Real Madrid on the pitch and that's more important."
