Chelsea are bracing themselves for a £20million bid from Real Madrid for Brazilian midfielder Ramires.

Real have been tracking Ramires for some time, with an enquiry rejected by Chelsea during the summer.

However, Carlo Ancelotti is set to return to his former club for the 26-year-old in the January transfer window.

Express Sport understands that the Spanish giants are preparing a £20m move for Ramires and are willing to include players as part of the deal.

Jose Mourinho is keen on former Liverpool star Xabi Alonso and Manchester United target Sami Khedira, with Real prepared to offload both players.

Alonso, 31, will become a free agent next summer while 26-year-old Khedira came close to joining United on deadline day before David Moyes moved for Marouane Fellaini.

Ancelotti would prefer a straight cash deal with Chelsea, but is determined to land Ramires – who he signed while in charge at Stamford Bridge in 2010.
