Real Madrid are eyeing up a sensational swoop for Chelsea striker Diego Costa, according to the Express.
The Spanish striker joined the Blues from Atletico Madrid in £32million deal in the summer and has taken the Premier League by storm, netting 11 goals in 10 league outings.
Such form has alerted European Champions Real Madrid, who are serious about trying to tempt the Spain international back to La Liga just a year after leaving.
Carlo Ancelloti is eager to add to a front line that already includes the likes of Karim Benzema, Isco, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo.
But with both Benzema and Bale linked with moves away from the Bernabeu between now and next summer, a move in-form Costa could be a real possibility, with a potential world record bid being enough to tempt Jose Mourinho to cash in.
