There has been some reports which have claimed Real Madrid are ready to trump Chelsea in the hunt for Luke Shaw.
The 18-year-old Southampton starlet has broken into the England squad this season and been tipped to go to the World Cup with Roy Hodgson.
He is rated as one of the best young talents in the game and blues boss Jose Mourinho has been the favourite to prise Shaw away from the south coast this summer.
However, according to the Daily Mirror, Real are looking to battle the blues and tempt him to Spain with a big money offer.
Mourinho currently has right-back Cesar Azpilicueta playing at left-back and keeping 100-cap England international Ashley Cole out of the team.
