Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich ‘thinks’ of bringing Ramón Planes to Stamford Bridge, according a ‘confidential’ report from today’s Sport.

The Spaniard was with Barcelona from the summer of 2018 and left them last November.

Since his decision to step down as the Catalan club’s director, he has been linked to a handful of clubs, both in La Liga and across Europe.

The newspaper explains the 54-year-old has ‘offers on the table’. Sport does not specify the clubs who has sent proposals to Planes, but states it is ‘almost certain’ he will not be working in Spain.

Planes was instrumental in ‘discovering’ youngsters like Gavi, Pedri, Ronald Araújo, Abde Ezzalzouli and a few others.

According to the report, ‘top-level clubs’ are ‘probing him’ and one of them is the Champions League winners. It’s claimed Abramovich ‘wants to improve’ the Blues’ sporting project and considers signing Planes.

Apart from Chelsea, there is another, unnamed, English club who have already met the former Barcelona technical secretary to propose their project to him.

Sport suggest Planes should end up leading one of these clubs in the coming weeks. Whether it will be Chelsea or another side remains to be seen.
