Fabio Coentrao is not ruling out a move to Stamford Bridge.
Portuguese star Fabio Coentrao became the most expensive left-back in the world when he signed for Real Madrid for £26.4m in 2011.
Yet Coentrao has admitted that he has never felt at home at the Santiago Bernabeu and with manager Jose Mourinho departing at the end of the season the 25-year-old may do the same.
“It seems like they haven’t wanted me here from day one,” the Portugal international was quoted on Marca.
“At the moment, it seems that everyone wants me to leave the club. I don’t know what I’ve done to them.
“If I leave Real Madrid, I’m not closing the door to anyone.”
Coentrao has been linked with a move to the Premier League by following Mourniho after his inevitable return to Chelsea.
The defender has made 30 appearances for Madrid in all competitions in 2012/13, scoring one goal and providing an assist for another.
Yet Coentrao has played in just 16 games in La Liga this season and is upset by rumours that he is wanted out of the club.
The Madrid player was at Benfica before his transfer to the Spanish capital and has struck up a good on-field relationship with national team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo.
Coentrao has earned 34 caps for Portugal since making his debut against Bosnia in November 2009.
The full-back has looked comfortable on the international stage and played in all five of Portugal’s Euro 2012 matches.
If Mourinho did decide he wanted Coentrao at Stamford Bridge then it would certainly keep long-term left-back Ashley Cole on his toes.
