Chelsea set sights on Real Madrid target

European Champions Chelsea are set to continue their summer spending and have their eyes on a move for Real Madrid target Gregory van der Wiel say the MailOnline.

Chelsea have already tied up the signature of Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard, who passed a Stamford Bridge medical on Monday, and it is claimed Chelsea have now turned their attention to Ajax fullback van der Wiel. Blues owner Roman Abramovich has already allowed Portuguese international Jose Bosingwa  to depart Stamford Bridge, with 24-year-old van der Wiel seen as the perfect replacement at right-back.

The Dutch star has also been linked with Real Madrid however and TalkSPORT recently quoted the player’s agent as saying van der Wiel favours a move to the side coached by former Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho. 

Van der Wiel has also long-been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge and the MailONLINE claim the defender told Sky Sports he would be tempted by a switch to Chelsea saying: “‘It would be a beautiful club (to join).”
