But the German has found an unwilling side with which to do business in the shape of Real Madrid, with both the player and the club being fully committed to their partnership.

Real Madrid, however, have no intention of selling the player, who scored the final goal in Madrid's 4-2 Champions League triumph over Bayern Munich.
