[football] direct news understands that Jose Mourinho has become buoyed by the news that Fabio Coentrao is set for a new deal with Real Madrid, possibly allowing him a free shot at Marcelo. News of a new contract for Portuguese full-back Fabio Coentrao has filtered through Spanish press in the last couple of days and that has led to a prospective transfer offer from Chelsea for Marcelo. The Brazilian left-back has been linked with a summer move, with the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea but the future of Coentrao and the possible arrival of Sevilla defender Alberto Moreno have further changed the situation. Jose Mourinho is desperate to replace ageing England international Ashley Cole, who is free to leave Stamford Bridge this summer and the Portuguese coach is open to a reunion with Marcelo. The 25-year-old is currently valued at around 25m but with Real Madrid looking to make a move for young Spaniard Moreno, a cheaper deal could develop.
