Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is chasing Chelsea midfielder Ramires.

The Sunday Express says Jose Mourinho wants to raid his former club Chelsea for all-action midfielder Ramires.

The Real Madrid boss reckons Ramires, 25, would be the perfect partner for Xabi Alonso.

But he knows that it would take a huge bid to persuade Chelsea to part with the Brazil international who has established himself as a key member of the team since his £19.8million move from Benfica two years ago.
