Real Madrid & Chelsea to be involved in €100m transfer swap

Published 5 Comments

Chelsea and Real Madrid could see their transfer plans intertwined in the January transfer window, due to Jose Mourinho's apparent plans to recruit Sergio Ramos.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport, citing sources in Spain, suggests that if Chelsea's pursuit of Ramos comes to a successful conclusion Madrid may in turn then target David Luiz as his replacement.

Such speculation follows and interesting few days concerning the availability of both Ramos and Luiz, who each have reason to wonder where they might be playing their football come the end of the winter transfer window.

It is believed that Ramos has been targeted by Chelsea as Mourinho looks to improve his back-line, and comments made by Bernabeu president Florentino Perez highlighted a potential €65million move did little to quell the rumours.

On the other hand Luiz is said to be considered surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge by the Blues boss, and has been tipped to join Barcelona in a deal worth around €35million.

However now the Spanish press is claiming that alternatively it could be Real Madrid who seize the initiative in order to replace the man who will ultimately replace the Brazilian himself, which would bring the total amount of money exchanged in the two deals to a whopping €100million.

Ramos is also wanted by Chelsea's Premier League rivals Manchester City, whilst Luiz could spark a battle between Spanish giants Barca and Madrid.
