Reports say a deal for the Spaniard would be 'complicated' but the Blues are willing to enter talks to complete the transfer.
Pep Guardiola is a fan of Ramos and would be keen on a transfer to bring him to England.
The report continues by claiming the club see the 34-year-old as a top player who would be an 'interesting' option to provide leadership and experience at the back.
Finally, the Premier League club are prepared to meet Ramos' financial demands, though they are aware that the most likely scenario is that he extends his stay in the Spanish capital.
However, they want to be in pole position should contract talks break down.
