VfL Wolfsburg star Andre Schurrle has asked club bosses to OK his move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The former Chelsea player is said to have his heart set on joining Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.
Although the move is expected to go through, negotiations are believed to have stalled on VfL Wolfsburg's asking price for the player.
Real Madrid's initial bid of €24 million was considered to be too low, according to club insiders.
