Chelsea may launch a bid for Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos after the defender was told that he could be sold by the Spanish club, according to Spanish media outlet Diario Gol.
The 30-year-old has spent the last 11 years in the Spanish capital after moving from Sevilla in 2005, winning three La Liga and two UEFA Champions League titles during his time at the Bernabeu.
The 2010 World Cup winner, however, may see his Madrid career come to an end at some stage this season after being told that he is no longer untouchable by president Florentino Perez.
Consequently, this has alerted a few clubs across Europe, and it is Chelsea and Italian giants Juventus that appear to be showing the most interest in the defender.
Blues boss Antonio Conte is on the lookout for defensive reinforcements after seeing his side struggle at the back in the early stages of the new season.
They have conceded nine goals so far in the Premier League, and this will frustrate Conte – whose Juventus and Italy teams were repeatedly praised for their defensive solidarity while he was in charge of both outfits.
Chelsea have already been linked with a move for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci in January, with it plausible that the deal for the Italian centre-back could decide the outcome of any Ramos deal.
