Chelsea made a shock late bid for Feyenoord wing-back Royston Drenthe yesterday.

AS says as Drenthe's agent, Sigi Lens, was wrapping up final details of a contract with Real Madrid sports director Pedja Mijatovic, he was contacted by a Chelsea representative with an offer of £12 million to pass onto Feyenoord.

The Blues bid was immediately rejected as Drenthe had his heart set on moving to Real.
