It has been confirmed from a reliable source that Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane is the No. 1 target for Chelsea this summer. The Frenchman is yet to extend his contract with Real Madrid and it expires in 2021.
According to Christian Falk of Sport Bild, Raphael Varane is the No. 1 target for Chelsea this summer as the defender remains a priority for the Blues.
While Thomas Tuchel is personally interested in signing the Real Madrid defender, Manchester United is also keeping close tabs on the 28-year-old.
Varane, meanwhile, is out of contract in 2022, and as per reports, the France international has no intention of extending his current deal with the current La Liga champions.
The Real Madrid center-back is now valued at €70m by Transfermarkt but Los Blancos are likely to lower their asking price for the defender to avoid losing him on a free transfer at the end of the 2021-22 season.
