Reports in Spain suggest he is ready to leave the La Liga club.

Chelsea are in the market for a world-class winger, and Di Maria, who has scored five goals in 27 appearances for Argentina, fits the bill.

Real signed Di Maria from Benfica for 25m in 2010 but are due to pay an extra 10m on the deal based on appearances.
