Chelsea look to take advantage of Madrid’s Ramires pursuit

Luka ModricThe Football Transfer Tavern is full of Chelsea fans tonight, and they are looking forward to seeing a lot of their clubs’ players representing their country this week.

One of them is playing tonight, with Blues midfielder Ramires more than likely to line-up for Brazil against Croatia.

But he may not be a Chelsea representative for much longer if Real Madrid keep up the hunt for his signature, with Chelsea said to be entertaining the idea of a swap deal involving Luka Modric.

According to The Daily Express, Jose Mourinho will take full advantage of Real Madrid’s pursuit of Ramires.

Carlo Ancelotti wants to bring Ramires to La Liga having built up a great working relationship with the Brazilian whilst in charge at Stamford Bridge.

However up until now Chelsea haven’t been willing to negotiate any prospective sale of the 27-year-old.

But it now seems that the West London club are prepared to send Ramires and £10 million to Spain in return for Luka Modric.

Mourinho has been a long-term fan of the Croatian and it’s understood this would be the only way that Ramires would leave the Blues.
