Abramovich told to sign absolute superstar after £100 million defender tells Madrid he wants move
Reports have claimed that Chelsea target Raphael Varane has told Real Madrid he wants to leave the club.
Regarded as one of the finest defenders in the game right now, the Frenchman has won three La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies among other honours since arriving in 2011.
However, there has been some shock speculation in the media over the past few days which have suggested that Madrid would be open to the idea of letting Varane leave the club in the coming windows in order to raise some funds.
It is no secret that the COVID-19 has affected this finances of clubs around the world, and with this Madrid side aging, there is reportedly a need to replenish the ranks at the Bernabeu and bring in some fresh meat, both defensively and in attack.
Now , Chelsea have been boosted in their chase to finally get the Frenchman signed up after reports on Sport have claimed that the defender has told the club that he wants to leave.
The French defender has been with the Spanish giants since 2011, but is now looking to depart in search of a new adventure.
And the reports suggests with Varane’s contract expiring in 2022, Madrid will look to cash in rather than letting him walk free next year.
Look, if the reports are true and Varane has told the Spanish giants that he wants to leave the club in the coming windows, then Chelsea should be one of the clubs that try to get a deal done.
Kurt Zouma has been impressive but he is no Varane and Thiago Silva will need to be replaced too.
This would be a very good move for Chelsea to make, if the reports are true and there is a chance for a deal to happen
