Saviola’s agent is expected to arrive in England for talks tomorrow, according to News of the World.
The 24-year-old has admitted that he is keen on leaving the Spanish giants.
He said: “I expressed to our coach Juande Ramos that I needed to play.
“I even said that if I wasn’t part of his plans, that he should tell the management to let me leave in the January transfer window because this situation is intolerable. I’m going through a very tough time.”
