Coentrao on Chelsea's summer shortlist

Coentrao on Chelseas summer shortlist

Chelsea could move for Coentrao

Real Madrid's Fabio Coentrao is regarded as one of the top names in Chelsea's shortlist for the summer.

The Portugal international was close to a switch to Manchester United in the summer of 2013, until manager Carlo Ancelotti decided to keep hold of the player's services.

According to The Telegraph, Coentrao is fed up being a back-up to Marcelo at Los Blancos, and will seek a fresh challenge away from Bernabeu this summer.

It is added that the Blues consider Coentrao highly, and could bid for his signature when the transfer window reopens on July 1.
