The Rome club and Juve both tried to buy Salgado last season and now both Milan clubs have enquired into Salgado's status.
Salgado still has three years on his contract left and has yet to meet sporting director Jorge Valdano to talk over his future.
Valdano has discussed the problematic right flank and Javier Zanetti, Cosmin Contra and Juan Velasco have all been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
A swap deal including money and Salgado for Zanetti have been mooted, as has one involving Andrei Shevchenko of Milan but both would appear to be way off the mark.
Neither Geremi nor Salgado have impressed in the right wing back role and it would appear there could be movements on that front in the summer.
Meanwhile, Beto, Real's long-term target from Sporting Lisbon would appear to be on his way to Spain, despite the clubs failing to agree terms last summer.
Speaking to Marca, Beto said: "I haven't met anybody. I am a Lisbon player and any team that wants me, have to talk first to the club.
"I know of Real Madrid's interest but nothing more.
"Of course I talked to Figo about the club and the city. Very nice place and easy to live. Luis has told me also that the club is very big."
