Chelsea joined by Real Madrid in £30m Gabriel transfer race as Zidane sees Lille defender as Upamecano alternative – The Sun

CHELSEA have reportedly been joined by Real Madrid in the race for Lille star Gabriel.

But Chelsea now face competition from Real Madrid as they look to add a new defender this summer.
