Chelsea in chase for Casemiro

Blues plot Casemiro deal

Chelsea will reportedly battle it out with the likes of Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro.

The Brazil international has had limited opportunities in the Real first-team and is expected to seek a fresh challenge during the summer transfer window.

OK Diario understands that the Blues are in the running to sign the 24-year-old, who is mainly deployed in the defensive midfield role.

The report adds that the West London giants are likely to face a transfer tussle with European giants Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain likely to lodge offers of their own for the former Sao Paolo graduate.

Casemiro has made just nine league starts for Real this term.
