Geremi has also been tried in a defensive role, but he too has failed to impress.
Both Celta's Juan Velasco and Romanian star Cosmin Contra (pictured) have been linked with a move to El Santiago Bernabeu.
Salgado is happily settled in Madrid but could move to Italy if he is unwanted by Del Bosque, with Lazio and Milan having already targeted the player.
A possible swap deal for Velasco that has been rumoured would appear to be an unlikely option.
However, it would appear that Contra, who has impressed many observers with his performances in La Liga, is the most likely player that Real will make a move for.
The Spanish giants will face competition for the player, with both Valencia and Roma having watched the cultured defender.
