Bernabeu boss Carlo Ancelotti has been tracking Blues battler Ramires and it’s this interest that could fuel the possibility of a swap deal that may suit all parties.
Mourinho, who signed Modric during his stint in charge of Real Madrid, is ready to offer Ramires plus £10m for the former Tottenham man and negotiations between the two clubs is ongoing.
Similarly Ancelotti brought Ramires to Stamford Bridge and wants to reunite with the Brazilian, who is said to be open to a move to the Spanish capital.
Modric initially struggled following his move from White Hart Lane but has grown into the role and has gone from being something of a whipping boy with the club’s supporters to becoming a fan favourite and was a pivotal performer last term, making 48 starts in all competitions.
Though Ancelotti may crave Ramires it would still be a tad surprising if the Italian entertained the prospect of losing Croatian international Modric.
Prior to his move to Real Madrid Modric spent four seasons in north London before securing £33m move to the La Liga side.
