Officials from Santiago Bernabeu have already contacted the Romanian stopper's agent Ioan Becali to let them know that the highly-rated defender is not in coach Vicente Del Bosque's plans for next season.
Chivu has an agreement with the Amsterdam outfit that he can leave in the summer for a fee of é¼15 million (£12 million) and had attracted the interest of Premiership club Arsenal at the turn of the year.
However, Madrid have confirmed they will not be attempting to lure the stopper away from the Amsterdam ArenA, alerting arch rivals Barcelona.
One of Spain's most influential agent's, Jose Maria Minguella, has already been in contact with his counterpart Becali about the possibility of taking the 22-year-old to Camp Nou as Chivu's future at the Eredivisie club looks set to draw to a conclusion in the summer.
