Mikel Arteta´s agent is not surprised by reports that Real Madrid are interested in the Everton midfielder.

Arteta has been in superb form for David Moyes´ side this season and the Spanish press are linking him with a return to his homeland as Real coach Bernd Schuster looks to shake up his squad at the Bernabeu.

The midfielder´s agent Inaki Ibanez told Spanish sports newspaper Marca: "No-one from Real Madrid has come to us. But it is normal that a great club is interested in Arteta because he is doing very well."
