But the Blues are unwilling to pay extra, according to reports from the Evening Standard
Chelsea are only prepared to pay up to £28m for the former Porto star and refuse to agree to Real’s demand.
The 25-year-old still has four years left on his contract and reports claim Real Madrid will only sell him if they can make a profit.
It’s said Antonio Conte is keen to get Danilo over to Stamford Bridge to compete with victor Moses, but so far both clubs can’t get past agreeing on the transfer price to begin any contract talks with the player himself.
Chelsea are also reported to be in talks with Real Madrid over a £70m deal for striker Alvaro Morata and had been interested in James Rodriguez with Sky Sports News HQ claiming Morata is keen on a switch to the Premier League having previously attracted interest from United.
Meanwhile, there has been no more than speculation that the Blues were interested in James, with no formal bid being put forward before he was shipped out on loan.
