The 26-year-old Paraguayan has scored 13 goals in 23 appearances this season, catapulting Dortmund to a 11-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga.

Barrios cost 3.6 million when Dortmund bought him from Chilean side Colo Colo in July 2009, but would set a potential suitor back closer to 15 million now.

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen to add the 6'2" striker to his squad to cover for the injured Gonzalo Higuain, but faces tough competition from Manchester City's multi-billionaire owners as they seek a replacement for want-away captain Carlos Tevez.
