Chelsea have held talks with Real Madrid about the prospect of signing Danilo this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Blues have held “further” talks with the Spanish side about the possibility of landing the 25-year-old full-back this summer as Antonio Conte looks to bolster his defensive options at Stamford Bridge.

The same report states that Chelsea have ramped up their interest in Danilo after struggle to agree a fee with Juventus for the transfer of Alex Sandro.

The story also claims that talks between the two clubs could be “complicated” because Chelsea still want to also sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.

It is also stated that Chelsea could face competition from Juventus for the signature of the Brazilian defender this summer.

Chelsea have already brought in defensive reinforcements this summer with the capture of goalkeeper Willy Caballero and centre-half Antonio Rudiger.

The Blues are preparing for a return to the Champions League next season after Conte led the west London side to the Premier League title in his first season in charge at the club.
