REAL MADRID will table a £30million bid for David Silva this week.
Real boss Jose Mourinho wants the Manchester City star to add more creativity to his Spanish champions.
Silva was being pursued by the Madrid giants before he signed for Manchester City in a £24m deal from Valencia two years ago.
But Jose Mourinho failed to follow up their initial interest when he took over at the Bernabeu.
Now he has had a change of heart after seeing the way Silva, 25, helped City secure the Premier League title.
Madrid will also step up their attempts to beat Chelsea for the signature of Brazilian starlet Lucas Moura.
Blues owner Roman Abramovich personally sanctioned a £32m bid for the rising Sao Paulo star.
His agent insists Moura will not move until after the 2014 World Cup — but that claim has fallen on deaf ears in Madrid.
