Real Madrid ace Sergio Ramos has urged Real Madrid to beat Chelsea to the signing of AC Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci, according to report.
The La Liga champions have been struggling in the defence in all competition which has necessitated the signing of a world class defender to partner Ramos at the heart of the defence.
The captain has told Real Madrid directors to move fast to sign the Italian international ahead of Chelsea, according to Don Balon.
Bonucci is considered as one of the best centre-backs in the world, his addition to Real Madrid squad will definitely help the Los Blancos re-shape their defence and minimize their goal conceding rate.
Real Madrid will have to see off a strong competition from Antonio Conte’s side in a bid to sign the AC Milan defender.
Bonucci might fancy a move to Chelsea so as to reunite with his former manager at the Stamford Bridge, Conte worked with Bonucci at Juventus and at the national team level.
Chelsea desperately need the veteran defender so as to replace out of favour David Luiz, who had a fallout with Conte over tactics in the Champions League game against Roma.
Real Madrid should have what it takes to beat Chelsea to his signature of the defender in terms of spending power.
