Javier Zanetti has been linked with a move to Real Madrid after it emerged that his agent Jorge Oliva met officials at the Bernabeu on Thursday.

Reports in Spain claim that Oliva met Real director of sport Emilio Butragueno, with Real understood to be enquiring about a possible move next summer.

Zanetti is contracted to Inter until 2007, but his representatives hinted that a move to Spain was a possibility.

“We came here because I had a pending conversation, and came to greet Butragueno,” Oliva told Marca.

“Is there anything regarding Zanetti? Not at the moment, but we’ll see what happens in the future.”
