Real Madrid chase Chelsea midfielder

Real Madrid are reported to be hoping to recruit Chelsea midfielder Ramires, as club president Florentino Perez prepares for another enormous spending spree in the next transfer window.

Los Blancos splurged a world record €100 million fee on Gareth Bale in the summer but, reports Mundo Deportivo, they are ready to significantly reinforce again when the window reopens in January.

The Spanish giants are reported to have identified a number of high-profile targets, including Radamel Falco of Monaco, and the club are also interested in the acquisition of Ramires.

The Brazilian was signed by Carlo Ancelotti during his time as Chelsea manager, and the recently appointed Real Madrid coach is seemingly hopeful of a reunion with his former charge.

Current Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has an embarrassment of riches in midfield positions, but it would appear unlikely he would allow Ramires to leave - and in particular not to Real Madrid.

Ramires has started in all seven of Chelsea's opening Premier League fixtures, with the 26-year-old one of the only mainstays of an XI frequently changed by Mourinho upon his return to Stamford Bridge.

The Brazil international arrived at Chelsea in the summer of 2010 from Benfica for a fee of around €22 million.
