Real Madrid are in contract talks with Dortmund star Sven Bender, according to inside sources.
Real Madrid are believed to have had their €23 million bid accepted for the defensive midfielder.
The news has come as a shock to many in the football world, with England legend Gary Lineker saying on Twitter that he thought Bender would stay at the Westfalenstadion for 'some time to come'.
'I think the move is unwise', said Lineker. 'He should stay with Dortmund for another few seasons at least.'
