Real Madrid are reportedly preparing a £25m move for Chelsea midfielder Ramires.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu over the last couple of transfer windows, but the Brazilian has remained at Stamford Bridge.
According to The Mirror, however, Madrid will again test Chelsea's resolve with a £25m offer in January.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho is an admirer of Ramires's energy in the middle of the park, but it is understood that the midfielder could be available for the right price.
Ramires moved to Chelsea from Benfica in 2010.
