Real Madrid are weighing up a move for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Sunday Express says the Spanish giants are reported to be preparing a £20million bid for the Belgian youngster, who has now fallen further down the Stamford Bridge pecking order following the return of Didier Drogba.

Real's former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is understood to want Lukaku to bolster a strike force depleted by the £16m sale of Alvaro Morata to Juventus.

Ancelotti now has Karim Benzema as his only top striker and is eyeing Lukaku and Monaco striker Radamel Falcao as key reinforcements.
