Chelsea to solve right-back woes with move for Real Madrid star

Chelsea are considering a move to sign Dani Carvajal from Real Madrid in order to reinforce their defence given their poor start to the current campaign, according to Tuttomercatoweb, as reported by the Express.

The 23-year-old is being eyed as a possible replacement to Branislav Ivanovic who has been struggling to replicate the form which helped his side win the Premier League last term.

With Ivanovic’s contract set to expire at the end of this season, the Blues may let him leave the club as they prepare a move for the Real star.

Manager Jose Mourinho is now preparing to raid his former club for the right-back, who is currently competing for places with new summer signing Danilo.

The Spain international only signed a new deal this year, ensuring his stay for at least until 2020, but could be lured away if the Blues can table a convincing offer.

He featured 43 times in all competitions for the La Liga giants last season and is believed to be the subject of a January bid of around the £14million region from the current Premier League champions.
