Chelsea target Real Madrid goalkeeper

Published Add your comment

Chelsea are planning a surprise move for Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez next summer, according to Spanish publication Sport.

The 32-year-old Spaniard became first-choice stopper at the Santiago Bernabeu last season, under the former stewardship of Jose Mourinho, ousting long-term number one Iker Casillas from between the sticks.

Lopez is enjoying another fine season in La Liga with Carlo Ancelotti's side, so much so that Mourinho now wants to lure him to Stamford Bridge at the end of the current campaign.

Petr Cech is expected to be replaced by exciting young Belgian prospect Thibaut Courtois in 2014/15, and the Blues boss is also planning to fill the void expected to be left by veteran Mark Schwarzer, with the addition of the Real Madrid goalkeeper.

Chelsea are understood to have already approached Lopez to sound out the possibility of a Premier League move next summer, with Mourinho believing he has all the attributes needed to succeed in England's top-flight.
