Middlesbrough's on-loan defender Jonathan Woodgate is keeping his options open about a possible return to Real Madrid.
Although he insists he is enjoying his time at home-town club Woodgate feels he has some unfinished business at the Bernabeu.
The 27-year-old joined Madrid from Newcastle in 2004 but his time abroad was plagued by injury and he made just nine league appearance in two years for the Spanish giants.
'It was a great opportunity, and it's still not gone totally,' the five-time England international told Marca.
'Maybe if I'd been fit more and been able to play more regularly in those two years, I could have helped the team win titles.
'It's a part of my life that's not complete, but you never know. The thought of playing alongside Fabio Cannavaro at the heart of the Madrid defence has crossed my mind.'
However, Woodgate insists life is good at Boro, who have an option to buy the player when his loan deal runs out at the end of the season.
'When I arrived it was for one season and we will see what happens later. Nobody knows what will happen because I've got a year left on my Real contract,' he added.
'I do not know what is going to happen, I am happy here. I'm also ambitious and want to win titles, but we will see what happens at the end of the season.'
