It's not been the start any Chelsea fan wanted or expected, and according to reports in The Mirror today it could get a whole lot worse as Real Madrid have expressed their interest in long time Blues target John Stones. 

Madrid scouts have already pinpointed Stones as a replacement for Raphael Varane, if Man Utd manage to tempt the defender away from the Spanish side.

This is bad news for Chelsea, who couldn't prize Stones away from Everton during the summer transfer window despite a series of big money bids. With a leaky defence and John Terry on his way out, Stones could've been Chelsea's January lifeline.
