The Spanish giants are looking for a fee more in the region of £30m but Moyes is desperate to add some creativity to his midfield and refuses to go past the £25m mark, particularly if the side fail to make it into next season’s Champions League.
He will instead wait until next summer and try to tie star striker Wayne Rooney down to a new deal before reassessing his spending options based on where the side finishes in European competition.
Moyes had of course missed out on signing the player on the summer’s transfer deadline day after making a surprise move for him.
Moyes is also reportedly close to losing out on defensive target Leighton Baines after the England man has settled well into life under Roberto Martinez at Everton and has apparently told close friends that he is ready to stay at Goodison Park.
