Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria is being linked with a January move to Chelsea, amid suggestions an English club has made on official bid for his services.

Di Maria has scored 14 times in 73 appearances for Real since his move to the Santiago Bernabeu from Benfica in 2010 and still features heavily in Jose Mourinho's plans.

However, according to talkSPORT, a £35 million offer has been made for the 23-year-old, and Chelsea have been identified as the most likely club to have done so.

Andre Villas-Boas is reported to have a transfer kitty of £150 million at his disposal this month, and bringing Di Maria to Stamford Bridge would see to a sizeable chunk of that.

Along with the Argentina international, Chelsea have also been linked with Porto striker Hulk and Napoli hotshot Edinson Cavani.

However, according to Hulk's agent, the Brazilian is happy to stay with Porto.
