Chelsea are reportedly preparing to go head to head with Manchester United for the signature of Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane this summer.
The 27-year-old’s contract with Los Blancos is due to expire next June, and Zinedine Zidane’s side are said to be open to selling the defender in the upcoming market to raise transfer funds.
Man United are thought to be leading the race for the France international, who has scored twice in 36 appearances at club level during the 2020-21 campaign.

However, according to Bild journalist Christian Falk, the Red Devils are likely to face intense competition from Chelsea during this summer’s transfer window.
Falk claims that Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is an admirer of the World Cup winner and will explore the possibility of bringing him to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
Varane has made 355 appearances for Madrid since arriving from Lens in 2011.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
