Chelsea legend John Terry has been exchanging messages with reported Blues transfer target Sergio Ramos.

Thomas Tuchel has aimed to bolster his squad with a central defender this summer.

As expected, given that a player of Ramos’ calibre is now on the market and can be signed for free, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive.

According to Spanish TV broadcaster, El Chiringuito, who have close connections to the La Liga giants, Chelsea have made an offer to Ramos in the hope of persuading him to move to Stamford Bridge.

With that said, Chelsea fans might be interested to read about an exchange between Ramos and former captain Terry on social media less than 24 hours after reports of an offer emerged.

The latter took to Instagram and uploaded a graphic that has ranked defenders in terms of goals scored.

Unsurprisingly, with 103 goals to his name, Ramos was top of the list with Terry as the runner-up having netted 66 goals during his playing career.

There was no bitterness on Terry’s part as he tagged Ramos in the post with a crown and football emoji to suggest the former Real Madrid captain is the king.
