Chelsea want to make Real Madrid star Conte’s first signing – report
Chelsea are interested in signing James Rodriguez from Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain
Chelsea have contacted Real Madrid about the possibility of signing James Rodriguez in the summer transfer window, according to reports in Spain.
The Blues have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks as Antonio Conte prepares for his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings after their disastrous campaign last season.
However, despite all of the speculation, the west London side are yet to officially announce any new arrivals.
Now, Spanish outlet El Confidencial is reporting that Chelsea have joined the race to try and sign Colombia star Rodriguez this summer.
The same report says that Chelsea will face a fight with Paris Saint-Germain for the player’s signature in the coming weeks.
Chelsea do not have the lure of Champions League football to offer their prospective new signings this summer after their shocking season last term, which led to Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
