Spanish outlet Diario Gol, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Brazilian defender is hugely keen on a move to Stamford Bridge and wants Real Madrid to allow him to leave.
Danilo has struggled to hold down a regular spot at Real Madrid since joining the club from Porto in 2015 and only made 17 La Liga starts last term.
According to the same story, the 25-year-old is urging Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to let him sign for Chelsea this summer.
The article also states that Danilo is pushing for a move to Stamford Bridge because he is keen to link up with manager Antonio Conte.
Conte is on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Conte prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.
The Blues won the Premier League title in Conte’s first campaign at the club last season.
