Real Madrid have reportedly rejected an offer from an unnamed Premier League side for Esteban Granero, who has previously been linked with Liverpool.

According to Marca, an English club have lodged a bid for the 25-year-old, who spent much of last season warming the bench at the Bernabeu.
The bid was rejected by the Spanish champions, despite Granero only having twelve months left on his existing contract at the club.
Liverpool were linked with Granero throughout the January transfer window, and his agent had claimed at the start of the year that a move to Anfield could happen this summer.
A spokesman for his management company had also been quoted as saying back in January: "Esteban is going to stay at Real Madrid, from now until the end of the season.
"When the season finishes Esteban has one more year in his contract with Madrid and we shall see."
Arsenal and Chelsea have previously shown interest.
