QPR have reached an agreement with Real Madrid to sign Spanish midfielder Esteban Granero.
A deal has now been struck with the Spanish giants and Granero, who has one year left on his contract, is to discuss personal terms with QPR and will then undergo a medical.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur had also been linked with the midfielder but ambitious QPR are the club who have pushed ahead with the deal.
They announced on their official Twitter account: “QPR have reached agreement with Real Madrid for the permanent transfer of midfielder Esteban Granero.
“The deal is subject to Granero agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.”
He is QPR’s latest signing following the arrival of Jose Bosingwa, Rob Green, Junior Hoilett, Park Ji-sung and Ryan Nelsen.
Julio Cesar, who is awaiting international clearance, Danish defender Simon Kjaer, Marseille midfielder Stephane Mbia and Real defender Ricardo Carvalho could also be signed before Friday.
I highly doubt the transfer will be completed in time for Granero to play in QPR’s match against Manchester City this Saturday, but he should feature in the following fixture as long as everything goes to plan.
