Chelsea want Modric in Real Madrid bid for Ramires

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has told Real Madrid they can have Ramires - in exchange for Luka Modric.Carlo Ancelotti wants Ramires in Madrid after working with the Brazilian during his time at Stamford Bridge, says the Daily Express.

Chelsea have thus far been adamant that they are not willing to let the 27-year-old leave.

Real upped the ante by offering Isco and Sami Khedira in part-exchange for Ramires, but now Mourinho will look to turn the tables on his former club.

Much as Ancelotti remains a fan of Ramires from his time at Chelsea, Mourinho is a huge admirer of former Tottenham midfielder Modric from his time in charge at the Bernabeu.

And while neither Khedira or Isco tempted Mourinho to change his stance on Ramires, it would be another story altogether if Modric was made available.

Reports suggest that Chelsea are ready to send Ramires and £10m to Madrid to land the Croatian midfielder.

Real, however, are only willing to discuss a deal if Chelsea up their bid to £20m plus Ramires.
