The African ace declared he is still uncertain about his future as rumours circulate in Spain that the West Londoners are interested in pulling off a double swoop, with Steve McManaman also on their list of targets.
"Today, there remains some uncertainties," said Geremi. "I do not hide that, at this moment, one discusses my future.
"My agents, the leaders of Real and those from Chelsea are always in negotiations.
"I believe that Vicente Del Bosque, the coach, wants to keep me in the squad next season. I also know that Chelsea are interested in me.
"My employers are Real and it is up to them to make a decision even though, in the end, my word will count.
"Like I have said before, I am well in Real and I have three years remaining on my contract."
Meanwhile, some sources claim Claudio Ranieri also wants Geremi's Real team-mate McManaman, even though the former Liverpool midfielder is determined to stay in Madrid.
A tempting double bid could be winging its way to the Spanish capital, but 'Macca' is likely to reject any notion of heading back to The Premiership, even despite the fresh competition generated by Zinedine Zidane's arrival.
