Chelsea have made contact with the agent of Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos to sound out a potential shock move to West London in the near future, the Daily
The 28-year-old defender is in no hurry to extend his contract which runs out in 2017 but reportedly wants a more rewarding deal.
Ramos is said to be waiting for Madrid to put him on a similar pay level to stars Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema – and has already turned down the first offer from the club.
While he waits for an improved offer the Spaniard is keeping his options open and is even willing to consider a shock departure from the Champions League holders at the end of the season.
This stance has alerted a host of Premier League clubs but it is Chelsea who have taken pole position by contacting the star’s agent to gauge interest in a move to the club.
Boss Jose Mourinho worked with Ramos during his time at the Bernabeu and is all too aware a long term replacement for aging star John Terry must soon be found.
Having singed from Sevilla way back in 2005 the Spain international has totted up an impressive 428 games for Madrid.
