Romelu Lukaku, Ian Maatsen and Lewis Hall are among those expected to leave Stamford Bridge on a permanent deal once the 2023-24 campaign ends, while Thiago Silva may also leave the club with Fluminense eyeing a “dream” return for the Brazilian.

However, Defensa Central have now reported that Chelsea have offered both Fernandez and Cucurella to Spanish giants Real Madrid ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

Los Blancos are expected to be involved in several big deals this summer, with Kylian Mbappe, Alphonso Davies and Leny Yoro potentially on their way to the Santiago Bernabeu. Liverpool superstar Trent Alexander-Arnold has also been linked with a move to Carlo Ancelotti’s side in recent days.

Enzo Fernandez and Marc Cucurella to Real Madrid?

Despite Chelsea’s reported offer, Real Madrid have decided against pursuing a move for Fernandez or Cucurella, as per Defensa Central.

They believe that Bayern Munich star Davies is a far superior player to Cucurella at left-back and aren’t convinced that Fernandez is an upgrade on their current midfield crop, which includes Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde, Jude Bellingham, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.

Fernandez and Cucurella cost Chelsea a combined €186.5m, but neither have managed to live up to their huge price tags so far. The former performed well during his first six months at Stamford Bridge before regressing this season, while the latter is not first-choice when Ben Chilwell is fully fit.

Despite Real Madrid’s reported lack of interest, Cucurella has been heavily linked with a summer exit as Chelsea line up a move for a new left-back.
