Chelsea to offer £50M for Real Madrid's Raul

Chelsea are ready to splash out a stunning £50 million to land Real Madrid captain Raul.

DiarioSport says Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is determined to land a global name in the summer and after rejections from Samuel Eto'o (Barcelona), Andrei Shevchenko (AC Milan) and Ronaldinho (Barcelona) has set his sights on Raul.

Abramovich knows Raul is unsettled at Madrid, where he has admitted he will leave "if the board should tell me to" and has struggled for regular first team action under caretaker coach Juan Ramon Lopez Caro.

Chelsea are reported to made an approach for Raul before Abramovich last bid to prise Shevchenko away from Milan last month.

Real Respond To Rafa’s Raul Link

Real Madrid have issued a ‘hands-off’ warning to Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez after reported interest in striker Raul.

The Mirror claimed that Benitez was eyeing the Spanish international to solve the club’s goalscoring problems after disappointing performances from the likes of Fernando Morientes and Djibril Cisse this season.

But when Spanish daily Marca asked the Merengues about the link, the club replied: "Raul is untouchable".

The player himself is known to be happy at the Bernabeu and will only leave if he is told that he is no longer wanted.

Raul will be fit for this summer's World Cup after making a quicker than expected recovery from a serious knee injury.

Real Madrid won't block Raul exit - April 5, 2006

Real Madrid are prepared to listen to offers for captain Raul.

The striker is contracted to Real until 2010, but has lost his first team status this season due to injury and form.

While Real would never consider pushing Raul out of the club, if the forward was to ask for a transfer, the board wouldn't stand in his way.

Raul's situation has come into focus as it emerged this week that president Fernando Martin was preparing a major financial shake-up at the club.

If he's smart he shudn't leave RM. He is getting a pretty decent amount for doing nothing. There's no other club where he can get away with that !!!!!!
