Despite his recent run of good form it appears Real Madrid are ready to listen to offers for Portuguese international Fabio Coentrao with the Bernabeu side setting the 25 year old’s price tag at £18m, with Chelsea among the sides said to be interested according to Italian source TuttoMercato.

Tickets are now available for upcoming Premier League fixtures including Arsenal tickets, Manchester United tickets, Manchester City tickets, Newcastle United tickets, Liverpool FC tickets and Tottenham Hotspur tickets

The former Benfica man struggled to secure a regular first team spot ahead of Brazilian Marcelo but in recent months has shown a new-found consistency that has attracted a great deal of interest from a number of prospective suitors with Chelsea and Liverpool taking a keen interest in the attack minded wing-back.

Roman Abramovich may see Coentrao as a long term replacement for Ashley Cole, with the veteran England man being offered a one year contract extension.

Coentrao’s future may be linked with what fate befalls Jose Mourinho, with speculation rife that the Portuguese boss will leave Real Madrid this summer which may well leave a number of the signings he brought to the club consider their own futures.

Fabio Coentrao has made a total of 55 appearances for Real Madrid since his £24m move to the club in July 2011 and has 32 national team caps to his name.
