COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Manchester United have made an offer to Real Madrid for Denmark midfielder Thomas Gravesen, according to Danish tabloid Ekstra Bladet.

 

The paper said Alex Ferguson's side had offered 3.8 million euros (2.6 million pounds) for the international, seeing him as a natural replacement for Roy Keane, but that Real were holding out for 5 million.

 

"The ball is in Madrid's court. They are the ones who have to take the decision not me," Gravesen told the paper on Wednesday.

 

"They have to decide once and for all if they want me or not."

 

The 29-year-old joined Real from Everton in January 2005 for a reported fee of 3.5 million euros ($4.68 million).

 

After being a regular starter under Wanderley Luxemburgo until the end of last season he has dropped out of favour this season as new coach Juan Ramon Lopez Caro has preferred Pablo Garcia, Guti, Ivan Helguera and Sergio Ramos.

 

Gravesen has a contract with Real till 2008.

gravesen is s***, he might be a good player for the likes of everton or bolton but not for a supposedly top european team.

 

he will be a good stop-gap for them...certainly better than the likes of smith or o shea in the middle of the pitch.

 

hopefully vidic and evra "will not come to terms with the pace of the PL"

Gravesen isn't really the type of player they need, he's better as an attacking midfielder, they already have loads of them. They need a replacement for Keane and while Gravesen would tackle a truck he hasn't got the positional sense to be as effective as a DM. He looked average for Everton as a DM and then was class for 6 months when they stuck Carsley in there and moved him further forward.

He never once played "defensive midfield" for us.

 

He got the ball and played wherever the hell he wanted, he never stuck to a certain position and wandered so much at times it was infuriating but at other times he could play a pass of such sublime quality it was unreal.

 

He is not a defensive midfielder, he can't defend for his life, I'm certain Madrid had saw Carsleys performances and thought it was Gravesen, seriously.

 

He had been inconsistent for Everton, not cack. He was our best midfielder in his time at Everton by far, I really hope he doesn't go to Utd, we have first option on him to buy him back for what Madrid payed, we should trigger it and get him back, we need him.
