He could be joined by Gareth Bale at the club with the Welshman facing an uncertain future at the Estadio Santiago Bernebeu Stadium.
Bale has less than three years on his Real Madrid contract and he came close to leaving the club during the summer.
He was closing in on a free transfer move to Chinese Super League (CSL) outfit Jiangsu Suning before Real Madrid president Florentino Perez called the deal off.
Long-term Manchester United target Gareth Bale would have earned £1m weekly in China which is a significant increase in his salary of £600,000 at Real Madrid.
He joined Real Madrid from Spurs in a then world-record transfer worth £85.3m some six years ago.
