Javier Zanetti's agent met with Real Madrid's Emilio Butragueno on Thursday.Javier Zanetti could be on his way to Real Madrid after revelations 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 for 45 minutes on Thursday afternoon.
It is thought Real were enquiring about the Internazionale star's situation with a view to a move next summer.
The 31-year-old signed a contract extension with Inter last season which ties him to the club until 2007, but his representatives hinted that a move to Spain was a possibility.
When quizzed as to the purpose of their visit to Real, Oliva told Marca: "We came here because I had a pending conversation, and came to greet Butragueno.
"Is there anything regarding Zanetti? Not at the moment, but we'll see what happens in the future."
Zanetti has been at Inter for ten years, but could well be tempted by the prospect of ending his career with Real.
He is still an integral part of Roberto Mancini's first-team plans having made 11 appearances already this term, and thus any move by the Primera titans is likely to necessitate a substantial fee.
