Real Madrid Target Chelsea Full-Back

Bernabeu side keen on Stamford Bridge wide-man.

Check in to Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea

Real Madrid are reportedly planning a surprise move to sign Chelsea right-back Cesar Azpilicueta according to Italian source TuttoMercato.

Azpilicueta had a steady debut season at Stamford Bridge, starting 43 matches in all competitions, but under Jose Mourinho he has seen his chances diminish greatly. Thus far the 24 year old has managed just one Premier League sub appearance and may feel that he is not part of the new manager’s plans.

At Real Madrid the former Marseille man may similarly struggle for first team action given that Ancelotti can call upon the likes of Daniel Carvajal, Alvaro Arbeloa and Sergio Ramos to fill the right-back berth.

One wonders also if Chelsea are willing to do business with their former boss or indeed whether they’d be keen on selling any of their first team squad to a Champions League rival.

Either way Azpilicueta must be wondering what the future will hold and knows he will have to fight hard to get his chance to prove Mourinho that he is the right man to fill the slot at the right hand side of the Chelsea defence.
