Spanish giants Real Madrid have turned their attention to Chelsea target and AC Milan forward Suso as a replacement for Gareth Bale who is believed to be on his way out of the club.
Before now, Chelsea were pointed to be the front-runner for the forward with a bid believed to be made for a deal to be in place in the winter transfer window which opens in the coming month.
However, they might not have it all easy with the strong interest already shown by the La Liga giants in the player as they prepare for life without Bale.
Bale is out of favour at Real Madrid having lost his form despite the exit of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus which hands him the free ride to also reign.
The former Tottenham player is also believed to be having a sour relationship with some key members of the Real Madrid team and they are reported to be pushing for his exit from the management.
Suso, as been praised to be the big thing expected to hit Europe and most big guns, are making efforts to have him join their camp.
There are fears that Chelsea will miss out on the AC Milan with the emergence of Real Madrid.
