Capello anger to spell Real Gravesen exit
Thomas Gravesen looks set to leave Real Madrid after new coach Fabio Capello criticised the Dane's attitude during the club's recent tour of Austria.
Gravesen was involved in a bust-up with Brazil striker Robinho on the tour and when Capello was asked if he thought the former Everton midfielder was at fault, he replied: 'Possibly. But I am not going to have problems with him.
'He is a little different but he works hard which is important to me.
'His behaviour? I don't like it, he wants everyone to do what he wants, and I have told him so.'
Gravesen is reportedly a target of several Premiership clubs and when Capello was quizzed on whether the midfielder would be leaving Madrid, he responded: 'We shall see.'
The 30-year-old has failed to nail down a regular first-team place at the Santiago Bernabeu since joining Madrid from Everton 18 months ago.
On Wednesday his agent John Sivebaek told BBC Sport that Gravesen is ready to return to England, but played down reports linking him with Newcastle.
Sivebaek said: 'He loved England and he is only 30 so he could still play at the top level. So why not move back to England?
'I think some teams have contacted Madrid, but I don't know anything about Newcastle.
'He's not looking to leave Madrid, but it seems that he's not going to play there.
'He's not keen on leaving but if he's not going to play, he will look at other options.'
