Real Madrid has reportedly made a bid for the young French Real Madridplayer Gel Clichy.

Glichy has played with Arsenal since he turned 18, back in 2003, and has since been a regular first squad player following Ashley Cole’s exit in 2006.

Reports in the sports world speculate that Real Madrid is planning to place a bid for Clichy at the close of the season of about £16m.

Although he has recently signed a long term deal with the Gunners at the close of the 2008 season, it is possible that he could be sold after the emergence of Kieran Gibbs.
