According to reports in one of today's tabloids Real Madrid have decided to slap in a £4.5m offer for Hibs and Scotland striker Steven Fletcher.

Fletcher, 21, who made his
Scotland debut against Croatia last month will be signed by the Spanish giants in the summer and then loaned straight back out to another La Liga outfit.

Apparently Real Madrid General Manager Predrag Mijatovic met with officials from Hibs at Old Trafford, during the Champions League clash between Manchester United and Roma and a deal is said to be done.

Getafe and Real Zaragoza are all said to be interested in taking Fletch on loan next season and giving him La Liga exposure.

Premiership sides Newcastle United, Everton, Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham Hotspur are all watching the situation closely and are ready to pounce if the deal with
Madrid falls through.

Hibs have been in a consultation process with the support lately over the proposed building of a new East Stand at Easter Road, any money brought in by Fletcher's proposed transfer would more than likely be used to pay for the said structure.

What an exciting move for the lad, should this pan out, let's hope big Mixu is handed some of the transfer fee to replace the young Scotland forward. 

A cheeky wee bid for Mr Riordan wouldn't go a miss!
