Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel could be welcoming a world-class player to Stamford Bridge this summer as they could sign Manchester United target.
According to transfer news from Mundo Deportivo (h/t Express), Chelsea have moved ahead in the race for Raphael Varane. Manchester United and PSG are also said to be after the Real Madrid defender but the latest reports suggest that the Blues have stolen a march on both the clubs.
Varane has been a stalwart at the back for Real Madrid for almost a decade now and has won loads of trophies during his time at the club. However, the Frenchman is entering the final year of his contract with Los Blancos and wants a new challenge in his career.
It appears that Chelsea are leading the race for Varane and Thomas Tuchel is willing to offer the €70million being demanded by Real Madrid. Even recently, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez opened the door for a transfer claiming that a player can leave if they want to. It is clear that they don’t want any hassles blocking a transfer.
