Jose Mourinho has instructed Real Madrid spies to compile a dossier on Everton starlet Jack Rodwell.
Sportsmail revealed last week that Manchester United are preparing a £15million bid for the versatile 19-year-old, while Manchester City have also been linked with a move for Rodwell.
Mourinho is poised to reignite the Bernabeu club’s interest after asking Madrid scouts to update him on Rodwell’s progress.
The Portuguese manager’s request underlines Rodwell’s growing reputation as one of the brightest talents in Europe.
Everton’s tight finances are making it increasingly difficult for the Merseyside club to hold on to their prized assets and it is looking increasingly likely they will listen to offers for Rodwell in the summer.

Jack Rodwell is undoubtedly one of the most exciting young talents in the game of football at the moment, but I am sceptical of Real Madrid’s interest.
The club already possess a huge amount of talent in central midfield, and Rodwell is unlikely to gain an immediate first team role with Xabi Alonso, Sami Khedira, Lassana Diarra and Fernando Gago all in the squad.
Man City too have plenty of options in that department, but Manchester United are set for a massive overhaul this summer.
Owen Hargreaves is unlikely to be offered a new contract, Michael Carrick’s future is under review and Paul Scholes is still debating whether to continue playing.
If Scholes does elect to stay at Old Trafford, his role will doubtlessly be a less regular one than he currently has, and so the Mail’s statement that Old Trafford would be Rodwell’s first choice seems a reasonable assumption.
