Real Madrid star could be long term replacement for John Terry at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are contemplating a move for Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, according to the Daily Express.
Ramos is reportedly learning English – as is his international team-mate David Villa – and the Express states that Ramos’ lessons are in preparation for a move to Stamford Bridge.
The Real Madrid defender’s future could be linked to that of Jose Mourinho, whose tenure at the club remains in the balance, and he is any of a number of players who are waiting to see whether the Portuguese boss is kept on this summer.
Ramos is capable of playing at both right back and at centre back, and it is in the latter role he has played most of his football this season.
Under interim manager Rafa Benitez, John Terry has lost his place in the team, and perhaps club owner Roman Abramovich is contemplating a replacement.
Ramos is a quicker and more technically adept player than Terry, and is younger too at age 27. Astonishingly he is the youngest outfield player ever to reach 100 caps, having passed the milestone earlier this year.
