Chelsea are weighing up a bid for Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.

Sport says Chelsea are willing to lodge a €30 million offer to land Ramos, who new Real coach Jose Mourinho sees as a centre-half rather than right-back.

Ramos flirted with AC Milan last season and has had an on-off relationship with Real fans in the past year.

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen to bring in a young centre-half this summer with the future of Ricardo Carvalho up-in-the-air.

Ramos has been with Real since 2005, when he completed a €28m move from Sevilla.
