Chelsea are ready to offer €60 million to land Ferland Mendy from Real Madrid next year, according to a recent report by Catalan outlet El Nacional.
He joined Los Blancos from Lyon in the summer transfer market of 2019 and quickly established himself as an important figure for his team. However, the last several months have been difficult for him.
A long-term injury had kept the Frenchman sidelined for months before Ferland finally made his return this month.
So far, he has turned out 71 times for the Galacticos, registering three goals and four assists along the way.
However, there have been reports that the player could be facing an uncertain Santiago Bernabeu future, with Chelsea keen on landing him.
The Spain international Marcos Alonso is once again facing a move away from Chelsea despite a productive start to the new season.
With defender Emerson Palmieri unlikely to establish a foothold in the senior team setup at Stamford Bridge when he returns from Lyon loan stint, it goes without saying that the Blues might need a replacement for Marcos.
To that end, Ferland is a viable target for the London giants, especially given there have been claims that the La Liga side are considering his sale.
