Chelsea are looking to rebuild under new manager Antonio Conte, following a disappointing attempt at retaining their Premier League title last season.
The Pensioners will need an injection of talent into their squad if they are to get back to the top in England, and therefore there has been a lot of speculation as to whom might head to Stamford Bridge this summer.
A report in Spain today from El Confidencial suggests that Chelsea have been in talks with Real Madrid surrounding a move for James Rodriguez.
The 24 year-old Columbian is widely regarded as one of the most dangerous attacking midfielders in the game at present, but he has fallen out of favour at the Bernabeu since Zinedine Zidane replaced Rafael Benitez as manager.
This would be a move that makes sense for all parties concerned, as Chelsea are in need of a creative spark in midfield to bring their attacking stars more into the game.
Last season passed by the likes of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa, but in front of the right playmaker, the pair could rediscover the form which saw them carry the club to the Premier League title in the 2014/2015 season.
Rodriguez would be a major coup for Chelsea, but with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and PSG all reportedly interested, it could be tough to secure his services.
