The Udinese man has had a very good start to the season in Serie A and was also linked with a move to Italian giants Internazionale last month.
The 23-year-old is in his fourth season in Italy and Real Madrid are pondering a big money move for Pizarro to replace want-away midfielder Claude Makelele.
Newspaper reports in Chile suggest that the Bernabeu side would be willing to pay the requested é¼15 million (£9.7 million) price tag for the transfer of the South American.
Despite only playing in his second season as a first team regular with the Udine club, Pizarro has shown an interest further advancing his career away from the Stadio Friuli.
