The Spain international has struggled for minutes at Santiago Bernabeu due to Danilo's arrival and the Blues hope he will be sold despite Real Madrid's upcoming transfer ban
Chelsea have made contact with Real Madrid over a possible move for right-back Dani Carvajal, according to Fichajes.net.
The Spain international has found himself on the sidelines for much of the season following the arrival of Danilo from Porto and the Blues are keen to take advantage.
Branislav Ivanovic's poor form has led the Stamford Bridge outfit to look for replacements despite the Serb having recently signed a new contract.
And they see Carvajal as the perfect fit though it remains unclear whether Madrid will sell given their impending transfer ban.
