CHELSEA have reportedly made an offer to Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.
The centre-half recently confirmed he will leave the Spanish giants at the end of the season as a free agent.

Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be the frontrunners for his signature.
But according to El Chiringuito, Chelsea are one of four clubs to have offered the 35-year-old terms.
The others in the race are Manchester City, Bayern Munich and PSG.
ESPN claim the veteran defender is going through the pros and cons of each potential move.
Ramos, however, is said to have reservations about a move to Manchester.
The four-time Champions League winner is reportedly concerned about the ‘impact’ a move to Manchester would have on his four sons, and wife Pilar Rubio.

Ramos’ imminent exit from Madrid brings about the end of a 16-year love affair with Los Blancos.
But according to Real president Florentino Perez, the former Sevilla man was offered a new deal at the Bernabeu.
During an appearance on El Transistor, Perez said: “I had a tough time at Sergio Ramos’ farewell [event].
“I love Sergio Ramos like a son.
“I wasn’t with him at the [farewell] press conference because I’ve never been to a press conference with any player.
“I have an adoration for Sergio Ramos, and I’m not going to talk about the bickering.
“He has been a legend at Real Madrid and that’s what we Real Madrid fans are left with.
“We offered him a contract, we gave him a deadline and he didn’t accept it.
“He was thinking about other things and life goes on. He will do very well for sure, and this is his home.
“I would be delighted if Sergio Ramos went to a club that offered him what we have not been able to offer him.”
