Chelsea are ready to launch a bid for Real Madrid winger Robinho.

AS says new Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari wants to bring his fellow Brazilian to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Robinho's agent, Wagner Ribeiro, is reported to have already held talks with Chelsea chiefs after receiving short shrift from Real about opening new contract talks.

Real will demand at least £30 million for Robinho, though Chelsea will look to begin negotiations for around half that figure.
