Michael Ballack’s agent has denied claims that his client has signed for Real Madrid.

Spanish sports daily Marca reported that the German playmaker had already signed a deal with the Spanish club to join them in the summer of 2006.

However, Ballack’s agent, Michael Becker, claims the player has yet to decide where he will be playing next season.

“I have not negotiated any deal with Real Madrid and as a result Michael can’t have accepted anything,” said Becker.

“And anyway he still hasn’t made up his mind where he will be playing his football next season.”

However, Becker did confirm that Real are one of a number of clubs to have made a firm enquiry about the player.
