Chelsea in hunt for €18m Real Madrid reject

Fabio Coentrao has conceded his days at Real Madrid are numbered - with Chelsea reportedly ready to swoop for the Portuguese full-back.

Coentrao has never truly settled at the Bernabeu following his €30m switch from Benfica in 2011, and has made just 28 league starts for Los Blancos.

With Jose Mourinho leaving Madrid in the summer, the 26-year-old has admitted he will be following his countryman out of the door.

"From the first day I do not think I was wanted here," he told Portuguese paper Ojogo.

"Today it seems that everyone wants me to leave the club. I do not know what I have done wrong.

"We must find a solution that is good for both the club and myself, so that no one will lose out."

Ojogo reports that not only could Coentrao leave Madrid with Mourinho, but that he could also follow him to Chelsea.

'The Special One' is expected to be named as the new Chelsea boss in the coming weeks, and the newspaper claim an offer of €18 million would be sufficient.

Coentrao refused to rule out a move to Stamford Bridge when asked about his future.

"If I leave Real Madrid, I do not close the door to anyone," he said.

Chelsea appear well-stocked in the left-back position, with Ashley Cole a regular starter ahead of his understudy Ryan Bertrand.

The Stamford Bridge-based club have also been linked with above for young Southampton full-back Luke Shaw.
