According to a recent claim from Catalan publication El Nacional, Chelsea are willing to pay €60 million to get Ferland Mendy from Real Madrid next year.
In the summer transfer market of 2019, he joined Los Blancos from Lyon and rapidly established himself as a key role for his squad. However, he has had a rough time in recent months.
Ferland had been absent for months due to a long-term ailment until making his comeback this month.
With defender Emerson Palmieri unlikely to make an impact in the senior squad at Stamford Bridge when he returns from his loan spell in Lyon, the Blues will need to find a successor for Marcos.
As a result, Ferland is a potential target for the London club, particularly given reports that the La Liga side is contemplating selling him.
