The Spanish defender has been targeted by Real for some time and Blancos president Florentino Perez met his counterpart Manuel Vilarinho to discuss the situation, and agree that a deal will be done, although no fee has been discussed.
The Portuguese press has been furiously linking Real Madrid players with a move to The Eagles as part of an exchange deal, but press officer Joao Malheiro has denied all the rumours, saying that only the transfer of Marchena was discussed.
However, it is believed to be either Geremi or Savio that are interesting Benfica.
