Real are keen to sign the 27-year-old international but negotiations stumbled after Zanetti revealed his contentment at remaining with Inter.
However, following Alvaro Recoba's failed appeal to overturn a one-year ban, imposed for using a falsely obtained Italian passport, Inter are desperate to bolster their attacking options.
Recoba's suspension is not worldwide and Inter are expected to offer Real a one-year loan of the Uruguayan plus Zanetti in exchange for the Spanish club's Brazilian attacker Savio.
