Real Madrid midfielder Thomas Gravesen has again hinted that he might leave the club.

Gravesen is convinced there is a witch-hunt being carried out against him by referees and even his opponents.

”I notice it on the field,” said Gravesen. ”There is an atmosphere around me.

”My opponents throw themselves to the floor whenever I am near them and the referees pull out the cards so quickly.

”It is as though they are thinking ‘Here comes that killer from Real Madrid’.”

The Danish midfielder has been linked with a move to Old Trafford mooted following Manchester United’s loss of Paul Scholes for the season.
