Real Madrid plot move for Tevez after Van Nistelrooy deal is blocked

Real Madrid have turned their attention to Carlos Tevez after Hamburg blocked their attempt to re-sign Ruud van Nistelrooy, according to reports in Spain.
The Bernabeu giants wanted to take Dutchman Van Nistelrooy back to Madrid on loan until the end of the season as cover for the injured Gonzalo Higuain, but the Bundesliga club won't let him go.
And Spanish newspaper Marca claim Manchester City captain Tevez is the man they are now looking at.
The Argentinean is known to be unsettled in England and looked certain to leave in January after handing in a transfer request last month.
He later retracted that, but the prospect of a move to Spain, where he would not be faced with the language barrier that hampers him in England, would surely appeal.
City would fight tooth and nail to keep their talisman and would demand a fee in the region of £40million if Tevez were to leave.
Another potential stumbling block to the deal is that City would certainly not consider a loan, which is thought to be Madrid's preferred option to replace Higuain. Any move to bring in Tevez would have to be a permanent transfer and would see proposed summer deals for Fernando Llorente and Sergio Aguero scrapped.
